A teen defensive driving program, featuring hands-on drills involving wet-braking, skid control, and emergency lane change maneuvers, is to be presented at Owens Community College next week.
Four sessions are to be held daily June 26-27 at the Center for Emergency Preparedness’ emergency vehicle operations and driving course on Tracy Road in Perrysburg Township.
Open to area residents ages 15 to 20, the Key to Safe Teen Driving class will include classroom sessions and road training with participants using their own cars as well as the program’s Honda Civic Skid Car. The class was established in 2009 by KeyBank with the goal of improving teen drivers’ skills and raising awareness about the need for better training of young drivers.
In addition to holding a valid driver’s license or driving permit, participants must show proof of insurance and have use of a vehicle for the event. To register, call 877-793-8667 or visit keytosafeteendriving.com.
