Motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of death for young drivers age 16-20. However, students in Orlando and Orange county now have an opportunity to participate in free driving lessons. National Teen Driver Safety Week is October 18th-24th. Orange County students may enroll for 6 hours of behind-the-wheel and classroom instruction. Students who enroll will receive a voucher for $260 for the driving lessons. 4400 teenagers were killed last year in motor vehicle accidents. This program, made available through the Dori Slosberg Driver Education Safety Act, is designed to reduce this figure. The Doris Slosberg Act allows Florida counties to add $5 to traffic tickets to be used for driver education. Students who wish to take advantage of this opportunity need to check with their academic advisor.
