MOUNT KISCO, N.Y. -- Grand Prix New York and SurviveTheDrive joined forces to teach Hendrick Hudson High School teens the importance of driver safety and the responsibility that comes along with operating a vehicle.
Bob Green, president and trainer of SurviveTheDrive, who has held presentations for thousands of students, recently presented to more than 100 teenagers and their parents at Hendrick Hudson High School in Montrose. As an added bonus, the students in attendance gained eligibility for a school parking permit. Green used PowerPoint slide shows, visual demonstrations and his own stories to reiterate the dangers young drivers face.
Grand Prix New York and SurviveTheDrive first came together in 2011 to spread this message and have continued to conduct similar presentations over the past few years. Green understands the vulnerability teens can feel while behind the wheel and wants them to take their safety and the safety of the drivers around them seriously. "Whether or not it's inadvertent, car crashes can lead to injury or have fatal results and no one thinks it will be their error that causes it," Green said. "We use the time we have with these teens to help them put in the effort and attention necessary to prevent tragedy." Grand Prix New York has been committed to educating young drivers on ways to be safe behind the wheel.
"We're proud to support SurviveTheDrive in their efforts to impart safe driving skills on young adults," said GPNY Vice President Nat Mundy. "What they do for teens is wonderful and we're happy to have a hand in it."
This visit marks the last of the school year but SurviveTheDrive and GPNY will continue to sponsor more visits starting in the Fall.
