State Farm Insurance started a teen driver safety program three years ago.
And the state’s largest auto insurer is once again encouraging schools to register for their teen driver safety program. State Farm’s 2014 Celebrate My Drive program is all about preventing teen car crashes. Because, according to officials, car crashes are the number one killer of teens in the United States, causing more teen deaths than cancer, homicide and suicide combined. So, as Alabama high school students head back to class, State Farm Insurance urges teen drivers to take a stand for safety. State Farm Insurance Spokesman, Roszell Gadson sat down with TV24 to talk about why this initiative is so important. State Farm will award schools that have HYPERLINK "http://www.celebratemydrive.com/home" \t "_blank" registered and generate the most number of safe driving commitments with grants ranging from $25,000 to $100,000 to help fund the safe driving program. Two schools will also win a private concert from The Band Perry. The deadline for registration is October 7th. And October 15th through the 24th is when students can make the teen driver safety commitment and take the safe driver pledge at www.celebratemydrive.com. In 2013 State Farm awarded Ashville High, Guntersville High, and Zion Chapel High Schools with $25,000 grants.
