Young drivers are always at the highest risk, and with the snow coming, even more danger lurks around every turn taken too fast.
One community is targeting the problem; the Corry School District is helping to instill good driving habits in teen drivers, thanks to a grant from State Farm.
There's nothing wrong with going the traditional route with driver's ed, but with this grant money, Corry schools will be giving much more dynamic lessons when it comes to road safety.
Sate Farm is living up to its claim of being a good neighbor, by giving a $5,000 grant to Corry, half to the school district and half to the Corry Memorial Hospital, to fund safe driving programs and simulations for young drivers.
State Farm agent Dave Herr handed over the checks Wednesday at the hospital, which will bring in national level speakers, and things like hands on drunk driving simulations.
Sometimes we might overlook it, but motor vehicle accidents are the number one killer of young adults and teens.
That fact is what makes students safety outside of school so important to Superintendent William Nichols.
The school district and the hospital will put their grant money and their efforts together, to keep young drivers out of the ER.
