December is National Impaired Driving Prevention Month - New Resource
December is National Impaired Driving Prevention Month, and the holidays are an important time to emphasize safe driving messages with teens.
The Training, Research and Education for Driving Safety (TREDS) Center at UC San Diego has developed a program for teens that addresses DUI prevention. The free, online class “Steer Clear – Decide to Drive Sober” covers:
- Facts about alcohol and cannabis
- Risks of impaired driving
- California DUI laws
- Strategies to stay safe
This self-paced, 40-minute class can be integrated into existing ATOD prevention curriculum - an essential facet of youth education, especially during this important safety month!
