Driver’s Edge Returns to Atlanta Thanks to Straight Talk Wireless!

In advance of National Teen Driver Safety Week, Driver's Edge will be returning to Atlanta on October 17, 18 & 19, 2014 thanks to Straight Talk Wireless and its Straight Talk Safe Driver Initiative. The event will take place at Six Flags Over Georgia.

On Friday, October 17, we will be holding a special Driver’s Edge behind the wheel program that integrates Straight Talk’s Safe Driver Car Connection™, a device that helps keep families safe while the car is in motion by disabling text messaging. The experience will be a hands-on product test of the device and the impact texting and driving has on our driving abilities. If you would like to be a part of this free special event please call our office at (702) 896-6482.

Then, on Saturday, October 18 and Sunday, October 19 we will be conducting our free half-day Driver's Edge programs (for young drivers age 21 and younger) to further educate teens on overall driver safety. If you would like to attend, please register here. If the sessions are full, don't be discouraged! Sign up on the waiting list and come on out - spectators are welcome and spaces might open up!

And our most sincere thanks go out to Straight Talk Wireless for making our return to the Atlanta area possible!

 

Where Were We?? Reno!

We spent four great days in Reno, Nevada from July 24-27, 2014 visiting with our friends in Washoe County at the Regional Public Safety Training Center!

Another great turnout with total attendance of 1,081 students and parents!  Our thanks go out to all our local partners there, including RPSTC, Champion Chevrolet, the Grand Sierra Resort, the Nevada Dept. of Transportation and of course the Dept. of Public Safety Office of Traffic Safety.  We couldn't have done it without all of you!

We look forward to returning next summer!

Thanks State Farm!

A very special thank you to State Farm!  Over the years, State Farm has donated funds to help support certain programs we've held around the country and in 2014, Edge was again a recipient of a Good Neighbor Citizenship Grant from State Farm!  This year's grant helped fund our June 7-8, 2014 event in Las Vegas, which like all Edge events, was free for students and parents to attend! We're grateful for State Farm's commitment to young drivers and the help they've provided to Driver's Edge!  

You can learn more about State Farm at www.statefarm.com and you can find them on facebook here and on twitter here (and if you use the hashtag #StateFarmGrant you can find all sorts of great stuff on the causes they support!). 

Thanks State Farm! We hope you will continue to be a partner for years to come!
