[ARCHIVED] Teens and Distracted Driving/Traffic Stops and You seminar
Registration is open for our 'Teens and Distracted Driving' and "Traffic Stops and You" seminar which will be held on Tuesday, October 17, from 6:00 - 9:00 p.m. at the Elgin Police Department.Register here
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. Additionally, we will review what happens during a traffic stop.
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.
