Now Enrolling for GA Teens Ride with P.R.I.D.E. Program

The Warner Robins Police department in connection with the University of Georgia Traffic Injury Prevention Institute (G.T.I.P.I.) will offer a free two-hour course on January 25th and February 22nd from 6-8PM, designed to help parents and teen drivers. 

The Georgia Teens Ride with P.R.I.D.E. (Parents Reducing Incidents of Driver Error) program is an effort to reduce the high number of crashes, injuries and fatalities involving teen drivers in the state of Georgia. This is not a hands-on, mechanical "how to" course, but a class that addresses driving attitudes and behaviors of teenagers ages 14-16. 

The course is designed to help parents become more aware of their own driving behaviors, teach how to help their teenagers become safe drivers and explain how to conduct the supervised practice driving time required to obtain a license. 

To register for the P.R.I.D.E. program please contact Officer Christopher Fussell at OR (478) 293-1062. You must register before attending the course. 

Please sign up quickly for this free course, because space is limited to 30 teens per class. Classes will be held at Middle Georgia State University at 100 University Boulevard.
