Caddo Sheriff’s Office Hosting Distracted & Impaired Driving Program for Teens
Sheriff’s Safety Town will be a busy place today, as the Caddo Sheriff’s Office brings back its Distracted & Impaired Driving Program for Teens.
The class is specifically for AHEC students and is already full, but the Sheriff’s Office will be holding several more classes for the general public later this summer.
Participants must either be licensed drivers or have a learner’s permit. The course involves hands-on activities that focus on distraction and impairment. Participants will be operating a street-legal, electric car through an obstacle course under four separate conditions: with no impairments or distractions, while texting the “Pledge of Allegiance,” while wearing goggles that simulate being intoxicated, and while wearing goggles that simulate being under the influence of narcotics.
Today’s program runs from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. We’ll let you know when we find out the dates and times for future programs.
