In honor of National Teen Driver Safety Week, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, the Northwest Regional Highway Safety Network, local law enforcement and other safety agencies presented a driver safety event at four different schools in the area. General McLane High School was the only county school selected for the program, which had three rotating sessions.

Sessions included an impaired and distracted driver simulator; a presentation by Michelle Johnson, who shared her own first-hand experience of the deadly consequences of reckless and distracted driving; a DUI Victim’s Memorial Trailer that features over 1,000 names of PA DUI Car Crash victims; and a Crashed Pledge-Car, where students pledge to always wear a seat belt, follow the speed limit and not drive while impaired.
