This has been a popular class for teens and their parents, and it's being presented by our Traffic Unit. Registration begins for our 'Teens and Distracted Driving' seminar which will be held on Tuesday, April 4, from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. at the Elgin Police Department.
In an effort to educate new drivers and keep their passengers and themselves safe, this seminar will be taught by Elgin Police traffic officers and offered to teenage drivers and their parents or guardians. New drivers may lack the experience that is needed in many driving scenarios and officers will cover topics such as teen driver risks, how to prepare for an emergency situation, the dangers of distracted driving, seatbelt use, and the differences between adult and teenage licenses.
Online registration is available at <a href="http://www.cityofelgin.org/safeteen" www.cityofelgin.org/safeteen</a>; there is no fee for the class. A parent or guardian must accompany participants under the age of 18 and Elgin residents will be given registration priority.
