Parents and teen drivers (with permits or driver licenses) are encouraged to attend “Teen Driver Safety Night”, a free presentation by the nonprofit Center for Defensive Driving and hosted by the Buena Park Police Department Wednesday, Nov. 14 at 7 p.m.
This dynamic presentation, which will be held in the Police Community Room at the Police Department, 6640 Beach Blvd., is sure to have an impact on teen drivers. It includes visual aids, such as videos and photographs of traffic collisions, reckless driving, driving under the influence (DUI), distracted driving (cell phones/texting) and current laws affecting teen drivers.
In addition, there will be actual police car dash cam videos of moving violations, Public Safety Announcements on traffic safety, and teens will learn:
· How to avoid tickets
· How to avoid traffic collisions
· Why texting and driving is a bad idea
· About alcohol and DUI
· To be a defensive driver
· Not to be a distracted driver
A question and answer session will conclude the presentation giving parents and teens the opportunity to ask their own questions of interest.
Presenter Chris Knox has 28 years of experience as a peace officer specializing in traffic law and injury collision investigations. He is a nationally recognized expert on traffic safety and has given more than 100 presentations in Los Angeles and Orange Counties; but has also taught in Australia, Chicago, Tampa and Orlando.
