Motor vehicle crashes are the number one cause of death for persons between the ages of 16 and 24. Alive at 25
is a driver intervention program that zeroes in on this group of drivers to teach them to take responsibility for their own driving behavior by making better driving decisions.
This highly interactive four-hour program uses workbook exercises, interactive media segments, group discussions, role-playing, and short lectures to help young drivers develop convictions and strategies that will keep them safer on the road. The National Safety Council, a leader in driver improvement training for more than 40 years, developed Alive at 25 to specifically target drivers in this age group.
Alive at 25 teaches young adults that:
- People in their age group are more likely to be hurt or killed in a vehicle crash.
- Inexperience, distractions, and peer pressure cause unique driving hazards.
- Speeding, alcohol, and party drugs greatly increase their risk of injury or death.
- As a driver or passenger, they can greatly reduce their risk by taking control.
- Committing to changing their driving behavior makes personal, legal, and financial sense.
The Alive at 25 program is taught by Elmhurst police officers to teens that attend local public and private high schools. For more information about the next Alive at 25 classes, please call the Elmhurst Police Department at (630) 530-3009.
