Public Education Programs
This course targets children seven to fourteen years of age. Each child is given a certificate at the end of the course to show that they know the importance of Traffic Safety.
The one hour course covers the following areas:
The "Every 15 Minutes" program is an event staged at local high schools to draw attention among high-school seniors to the dangers of drinking and driving. Held at around the time of the Senior Prom, the program includes a mock-collision staged adjacent to the school grounds, the "death march" (where selected seniors are pulled from class every 15 minutes and are designated as "dead" for that day), and a multimedia presentation presented by Friday Night Live, MADD, the Police Department, and other participating agencies.
