AAA, CCRI offers free program for future teen drivers

LINCOLN - In recognition of National Teen Driver Safety Week, the Community College of Rhode Island will host AAA's Dare to Prepare workshop for soon-to-be teen drivers and their parents. The event will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 16, from 6 to 7:30 p.m., at the CCRI Flanagan Campus, 1762 Louisquisset Pike, in Room 2704. Dare to Prepare, a nationally recognized pre-permit program, will be offered to families free of charge. The 90-minute workshop addresses the state's driver education process, behaviors which often lead to crashes, including distracted and impaired driving, as well as information on graduated driver's licensing, restrictions and penalties specific to teens.
