Meridian Police Department Offers Driver Safety Course for Teens and Young Adults

With the change in weather and the holiday season starting, the Meridian Police Department would like to invite young drivers, ages 15-24, to participate in the Alive at 25 program.

Alive At 25 Poster

Alive at 25 is a free 4½ hour driver awareness course designed by the National Safety Council for young drivers ages 15-24 which includes:

  • Defensive driving classroom curriculum to increase awareness and develop strategies for keeping safe on the road; and
  • Decision-making and responsibility-taking by learning through interactive media, workbook exercises, role-playing, and class discussion.

The goal of the Alive at 25 program is to help young people be safe drivers.

Unfortunately, we have all heard the sad stories of a young person being killed or injured in a vehicle crash. Statistics show that motor vehicle crashes account as the #1 cause of death for young people between the ages of 15-24. Alive at 25 will provide participants with the knowledge and thought processes necessary to engage in safe driving behaviors and to make safe driving choices.

Watertower in Meridian. All classes begin at 9:00 a.m.
