In 2010, TDS Junior High was officially launched to reach teens who were exposed to the dangers of car crashes, but have not yet begun to learn how to drive. Whether with siblings, relatives, or older friends, junior high students are beginning to learn driving habits by watching others and can speak up for their own safety. This program is modeled after Teens in the Driver Seat and covers the top risks teen drivers face, but is formatted to be delivered and received by junior high students. Understanding and knowing about these risks and safe driving habits places knowledge into their hands and encourages leadership skills long before these young teens ever sit in the driver’s seat.
The TDS Junior High program covers these important topics:
Helping keep the driver awake
Knowing why speeding is dangerous and reckless
Helping keep the driver distraction free
Why wearing a seat belt properly is so important
Never riding with an impaired driver
