In 2010, nearly 250 people died from crashes on Colorado roadways. Many of those were young adults - and most of those could have been avoided.
The Colorado State Patrol is offering an Alive at 25 class designed specifically to improve young adult's driving behaviors in Glenwood Springs on March 20 at 4 p.m.
Alive at 25 is a four-and-a-half hour driver awareness program sponsored by the Colorado State Patrol Family Foundation. This single class program has proven to be the most effective driver awareness class in the United States, with a substantially lower percentage of teen deaths compared to those that did not take this or another class.
The cost is $39 for those taking the class to attain their driver's permit, while those who are required to attend due to courts or other authorities have a $79 tuition. This National Safety Council class is designed specifically for those drivers, or soon-to-be drivers, between the ages of 14-24.
The program is taught by current or retired Colorado State Patrol Troopers at the Colorado Department of Transportation/Colorado State Patrol offices at 202 Centennial Street in Glenwood Springs.-
Successful completion of this program will result in the immediate issuance of a National Safety Council Certificate, eligibility to get a driver's permit six months early, waiver of the required six hours of behind-the-wheel practice with a commercial instructor and a possible reduction in liability insurance.-
