The National Safety Council Alive at 25 course helps educate young drivers about the risks associated with driving. 

Topics discussed in the Alive at 25 class include:

 

·         Why young adults often underestimate risk

·         Understanding the consequences of making poor choices and taking unnecessary risks

·         The negative effects and dangers associated with distractions, peer pressure, and driver inexperience

·         Current state laws regarding speeding, impaired driving, seatbelt usage, and cell phone and texting use

·         How young drivers can take control of situations to help achieve a desirable outcome

·         Collision prevention techniques and defensive driving strategies

·         Responsibility of passengers

 

The Alive at 25 program discusses how to properly manage peer pressure. Participants examine the fact that they are in control of their behavior and are provided techniques for keeping control in driving situations.  Through interactive video participation and role-playing exercises, they are provided the opportunity to practice making responsible choices.

 

Vehicle crashes are the #1 cause of death for people between the ages of 16 and 24. The National Safety Council, a leader in driver improvement training for more than 40 years, developed the program to specifically target drivers in this age group. According to the National Safety Council:

·         Young drivers are involved in fatal crashes at more than twice the rate of all others 

·         The first year for a newly licensed teenage driver is the most dangerous with more than one in five involved in crashes 

·         More than 320,000 young drivers are seriously injured each year 

·         Speeding and imprudent speed are the most common errors in fatal crashes involving young drivers
