The National Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration have joined forces to launch a safe driving educational campaign aimed at teens and parents. Spokesperson Barbara Harsha says it’s especially important this time of year with thousands of high school proms taking place. The educational program includes a teacher’s guide, video and other materials that are being distributed to every public high school in the country. Harsha says there’s also an interactive website. She says students can log on and get information about driving skills and take a quiz on-line for a chance to win prizes. Harsha says it’s important for parents to take part in the effort. Those kids in supervised driving programs end up being better drivers. Iowa now has a graduated drivers license for kids and Harsha says the state ranks highly in teen driver safety. Ford Motor Company is also sponsoring the effort. You can find out more at www.realworlddriver.com.
