New Teen Driver Program
The Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs will develop a new teen-driver education program with help from a $9,000 grant awarded by Ford Driving Skills for Life and the Governors Highway Safety Association. Alabama is one of just five states selected by Ford and the Governors Highway Safety Association to receive a share of $70,000 in funding to support teen safe-driving activities. ADECA will develop and conduct teen driving fairs at high schools across the state. The events will feature exhibits to attract student interest while delivering safe-driving messages.
