Teen Safe Driver Program Anthem

Teen Safe Driver Program Anthem


This free “Acci-don’t: Teen Safe Driver Program Anthem,” presented by Anthem-based insurance agent Justin Simons, begins at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 23 at the Anthem Civic Building. The event focuses on a variety of safety issues, tips and the financial impact safe and unsafe and distracted driving can have on teens’ lives. Those who have already completed driver’s education, as well as those who will begin driving in the coming years, are invited to attend. Parents of teen drivers are also welcome.

Smart and safe driving is vital not only to saving lives and preventing injury but also to avoiding financially expensive consequences, such as property damage and insurance rate increases. Many insurance providers even offer discounts to drivers who avoid citation and accident issues, which is especially important for teen drivers, who often pay higher premiums.

The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) measures the estimated economic loss caused by vehicle crashes and accidents on an estimate of wage and productivity loss, medical and administrative expenses, vehicle damage and employer costs. The estimated statewide economic effect in 2014 surpassed $3 billion.
