Johns Creek Municipal Court launches new teen DRIVE program

The City of Johns Creek Municipal Court has launched a new teen safe driving program. Driver Risk Intervention and Vehicle Education (DRIVE) is an online program designed to teach teen drivers long-lasting safe driving habits. The class, assigned as part of the probation process, will help young drivers become aware of the serious consequences of their driving behavior by providing resourceful information for making safer driving choices.

“The safety of our teen drivers and the driving public at large is of the utmost importance to the city,” said Mayor John Bradberry. “We all make mistakes, but our hope is that DRIVE will help these younger drivers to make better decisions in the future.”

According to the Georgia Governor’s Office of Highway Safety, the first year of independent driving is the most dangerous period for beginning drivers based on mileage exposure. Teens between the ages of 15 and 19 are more likely to be injured or killed as a result of motor vehicle crashes than by any other cause. The information covered in the new DRIVE program provides additional tools enabling teens to make safer decisions while driving.

The teens are assigned the free class as part of their probation requirements following the receipt of a citation from the Johns Creek Police Department. Previously, young drivers were assigned to take the Alive at 25 class provided by The National Safety Council. There is no cost to the participant, but the online class must be completed within 30 days.
