Driver Safety Awareness Day Slated for April 13 at the Corvette Museum

The National Corvette Museum and Kentucky Safe Driver have teamed up to offer a unique day of driver safety experiences. The full day program, slated for Saturday, April 13 from 8:30am until 5:00pm, is made possible through an affiliation with the National Safety Council, a nonprofit, nongovernmental public service organization promoting health and safety in the US.

New drivers will receive the required four (4) hour class on driver’s awareness, taught by law enforcement officers, to earn their Graduated License Certificate. In addition, the new Kentucky State Police (KSP) mobile substance abuse education exhibit will be available for attendees to experience. Participants will be given the opportunity to sit in a tractor-trailer for an exercise designed to educate them about blind spot safety. Members of Bowling Green’s Air Evac Life Team will be on hand to discuss their advanced emergency air medical service here in our region.

Students will receive instruction from the National Corvette Museum team on basic car care and maintenance, including checking fluid levels, how to change a tire, how to jump start a vehicle and more. Parents are encouraged to participate, too, as a seminar on Awareness Driving Techniques will be offered from the Andy Pilgrim Traffic Safety Foundation.

Registered students will receive lunch and a goody bag with gifts and discounts. Cost of student registration is $75.00. Space is limited to 80 students. Registration closes Friday, April 5.
