Edge & Straight Talk Wireless Kick Off National Teen Driver Safety Week in Atlanta!

As part of National Teen Driver Safety Week, Driver’s Edge returned to Atlanta on October 17, 18 & 19 thanks to Straight Talk Wireless and its Straight Talk Safe Driver Initiative

On Friday, October 17, we held a very special Driver's Edge behind the wheel program for media and local families which integrated 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 included a hands-on product test of the device and demonstrated the impact that texting and driving has on our driving abilities.

Then on Saturday, October 18 and Sunday, October 19 we conducted our sixth Driver’s Edge event in the Atlanta area, educating nearly 650 young drivers and parents over the course of the weekend.  With National Teen Driver Safety Week under way, it was a great opportunity to focus attention on the dangers of texting and driving and distractions in the car.

Our return to Atlanta would not have been possible without the support of our newest partner Straight Talk Wireless. To learn more about the Safe Driver Initiative, please visit STSafeDriver.com and you can find more information about the event here.
 

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!
