Binghamton Driver Safety Program Targets Teens

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

Representatives of several public safety agencies set up displays and held demonstrations for young drivers at the Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena.

Several hundred students from thirteen school districts attended Thursday’s program.

Broome County Stop-DWI coordinator Christopher Marion said this was the first year for the Teen Traffic Safety Day.

Marion said young drivers learned about the dangers of not wearing a safety belt and the effects alcohol and drugs can have on drivers. They also were informed about the hazards posed by distracted driving.

The program culminated with a mock crash to help illustrate the consequences of risky driving behavior.
