Suwanee to host teen driving program

SUWANEE — The Suwanee Police Department this week will offer a two-hour program designed to help parents and teens learn about driving safety.

The free program called PRIDE, which stands for Parents Reducing Injuries and Driver Error will begin at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday at the Suwanee Police Training Center. A city of Suwanee press release said the course focuses on driver attitude, knowledge and behavior. It’s not a technical, hands-on driving training course, but focuses on seat belts, crash dynamics, teen driving laws, parental influence and peer pressure.

A parent or guardian is required to attend with their teen.

The Suwanee Police Department offers PRIDE in cooperation with the Georgia Traffic Injury Prevention Institute.
