Clover High School will hold Alive at 25 Day on Dec. 1.
Continental Tire, which provided $10,000 for the driving intervention course, allows the first 300 students to register to participate free. The four-and-half hour course, taught by certified law-enforcement officers, normally costs $35. Continental Tire also is providing pizza for the students.
A driver intervention program that bridges the gap between what teens learn in driver’s education and what skills are needed to become good drivers, the program was developed by the National Safety Council for drivers ages 15 to 24 to help drivers choose safe driving practices, take responsibility for their behavior and to be aware of the driving hazards.
The Clover School District board in in September approved the program, requiring student drivers to take an Alive at 25 course to obtain a school parking permit.
The final district in York County to approve the requirement. Effective in fall 2013, any student who wants to park on campus must first complete Alive at 25.
Students who don’t take the class at Clover High are would be able to participate in other courses offered locally, including a course taught the third Saturday of each month at the York County law-enforcement training facility.
