Young adult drivers (age 18-24) are involved in fatal car crashes at an alarming rate. While fatal crashes involving young teen drivers fell 56 percent from 2005 to 2014, the decline was actually 11 percent lower for their older counterparts during this same time period.

This highly interactive program encourages young drivers between the ages of 16 and 24 to take responsibility for their driving behavior.
Our Alive at 25 instructors use personal examples and even humor to get their point across. They use workbook exercises, interactive media segments, group discussions, role-playing, and short lectures to help young drivers develop convictions and strategies that will keep them safer on the road.

Drive Smart of the Rockies, in partnership with the Colorado State Patrol Family Foundation, and the Brandon & Paul Foundation will dedicate a free Alive at 25 class for your group.
With the proven Impact Teen Driver, What Do You Consider Lethal? (WDCL) Program, Drive Smart of the Rockies instructors conduct classroom presentations at local colleges across Colorado. This powerful and engaging evidence-based program is designed to help young adults tackle the issue of reckless and distracted driving.
Motor vehicle crashes are not caused by involuntary or inevitable mistakes. Young adult drivers are as powerful as they are vulnerable, because most crashes involve voluntary choices. Throughout the class students are encouraged to explore the choices they make while driving. We emphasize the power they all have in making driving behavior choices that will keep them alive.
Presentations consisting can be held during normal classroom schedules during the school year, or at special events/sessions scheduled.
