Easton Police to Participate in Teen Driver Safety Week

Posted:

EASTON, Md. – The Easton Police Department wants to promote safer driving habits among teenagers.

During National Teen Driver Safety Week, from October 19 to 25, officers will be visible at local high schools, providing handouts, answering questions and keeping an eye out for drivers not abiding traffic laws.

Easton Police know that obtaining a driver's license can open the door to new freedom and adventure for teens but want to show these new drivers that it is also a great responsibility to operate a motor vehicle.

Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for 14-to-18-year-olds in the U.S., and almost half of all teen drivers involved in crashes die, police say.

The Easton Police Department encourages parents to take the time to speak with their teens about safe driving habits and to set a good example when they drive buckling up and putting down the phone.
