Carson Toyota Confirms, Toyota Launches Safe Teen Driving Program at Southern California High Schools
‘The Road Ahead’ will benefit more than 6,000 local students.
Carson Toyota is excited to confirm, Toyota is expanding its long-term commitment to safe teen driving with the introduction of an innovative national driver safety program,
The Road Ahead, in high schools throughout Southern California.
The program will benefit more than 6,000 local students in an effort to save lives and promote road safety. The Road Ahead is an expansion of Toyota’s free, safe teen driving program, Toyota Driving Expectations, which began in 2004 and has benefited more than 20,000 teens and parents.
Featuring Erica Enders, a nationally recognized race car driver and subject of the original Disney movie “Right on Track,” The Road Ahead kicks off its Southern California debut at selected high schools in the South Bay, Los Angeles and Orange County communities. Designed to educate and empower teens about road safety, the program engages students with high-impact video, live presentations and a distracted driving demonstration to teach them how to prepare, concentrate and observe the road ahead. During the simulated distracted driving experience, students will observe and understand the dangers associated with distractions behind the wheel. All programs are free and will take place during school hours.
In addition to The Road Ahead program in high schools, Toyota will once again offer Southern California teens and parents the free, behind-the-wheel defensive driving program, On the Road, in spring 2013. The 2.5-hour course supplements standard driving education courses with real-time opportunities to learn about defensive driving, the impact of distractions and safe habits. The program involves both driving time and classroom discussions, and is unique for requiring the participation of a parent or guardian to support coaching within the family. Interested participants may sign up to be alerted about registration for the Southern California program at www.toyotadrivingexpectations.com.
Additional opportunities to learn safe driving techniques are available at select Toyota dealerships and on the web at www.toyotateendriver.com.
