‘Alive at 25’ Defensive Driving Courses offered

Little Rock AFB will hold an “Alive at 25” defensive drivers course on July 18 for drivers ages 16 to 25 years of age. This course is free and open to all military ID card holders to include family members. This course was developed by the National Safety Council. For more information, contact Mr. Jim Yowell at 987-3290. Space is limited.

The objective of this course is to educate young drivers in order to reduce the alarming number of highway fatalities within this age group. What happens during the course? “Alive at 25” teaches young adults that:

People in their age group are more likely to be hurt or killed in a vehicle crash.

Inexperience, distractions, and peer pressure cause unique driving hazards.

Speeding, alcohol, and “party drugs” greatly increase their risk of injury or death.

As a driver or passenger, they can greatly reduce their risk by taking control.

Committing to changing their driving behavior makes personal, legal and financial sense.
