The Community Parent Center, in partnership with the Bellmore-Merrick Central High School District and Legislator David Denenberg, will present the “Driving in the Safe Lane” program at the Brookside School on Tuesday.
Driving in the Safe Lane educates parents and new teen drivers about safety measures, New York State driving laws and parental responsibilities.
The program was launched in 2006 by the Community Parent Center in response to the growing problem of unsafe teen driving.
“Our goal is to save young lives through education and awareness,” Wendy Tepfer, executive director of the Community Parent Center, said. “Our message is that driving is a privilege and comes with great responsibility.”
The program will begin at the Brookside School at 1260 Meadowbrook Road in North Merrick at 7:30 p.m.
