Safe Teen Driving Video To Make Debut At D.H. Conley

Keeping your teens safe behind the wheel is the goal of the Safe Communities Coalition of Pitt County.

The group has been working with Pitt County Public Information Office to develop a video focusing on teen drivers, which will make its debut at D.H. Conley High School Monday morning.

The video is called "Take The Option: Responsible Choices In Driving."

The group says the video aims to bridge the communication gap between teens and parents about why good choices behind the wheel can be a matter of life or death.

After talking to a group of teen drivers, local officials worked to pinpoint issues that arise while on the road, such as drinking while driving.

The teen driving video will debut 10 a.m. Monday at D.H. Conley High School.

After its premiere, the video will be used for driver's education classes, public television channels and social media.

Whether it's texting while driving or another form of distracted driving, car crashes are the number one killer for teens aged 15 to 17 in our state.
