The Queen Anne’s County Sheriff’s Office and the Chesapeake Region Safety Council offer Alive at 25 for young drivers between the ages of 15 and 24. This Defensive Driving class allows our young drivers to better understand the rules of the road and to recognize the risks of young drivers along our roadways. Research studies show that young drivers do have knowledge of the driving methods and driving laws; however, due to their inexperience and casual attitudes towards driving, they often use poor judgment and/or make poor driving choices. Every year, drivers under the age of 25 are involved in more than five million collisions resulting in 11,000 fatalities. Traffic crashes are the leading cause of death for young drivers.
Alive at 25 Defensive Driving Class will be offered at the Queen Anne’s County Office of the Sheriff, 505 Railroad Avenue, Centreville, Md. 21617 on August 1, 2009 and September 12th, 2009. Class begins promptly at 8:00 am and concludes at noon. No cost to Maryland residents. Contact Terry Ober, Traffic Safety Program Coordinator and Alive at 25 Instructor to reserve your seat by calling 443-995-5367. Seating is limited.
