County Offers Parents Free Course To Teach Teens To Drive

Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for U.S. teens, and account for 36% of all deaths in this age group. Experts say their best defense is good drivers education.

The Mesa County Health Department is offering a free class to parents of new drivers.

"Teaching Your Teen to Drive" is a one hour class designed to help parents become more effective teachers and understand Colorado's Graduated Driver's Licensing Law.

The course will be taught by experts from the Mesa County Health Department, the Grand Junction Police Department and Home Loan Insurance.

The class is Wednesday, May 23rd, from noon to 1:00 p.m. at the Community Services Building.
