 ‘Celebrate My Drive’ Keeps Teenage Drivers Safe

CHICAGOIllinois State Police (ISP) participated Saturday in the ‘Celebrate My Drive’ for teens at five locations throughout the state with the main event at Yorktown Center Mall in Lombard. 

Teen drivers were offered interactive driving exhibits such as the rollover simulator, seatbelt convincer and the Drive-for-Life: a golf cart driving course where teens attempt to text and drive while wearing fatal vision goggles. 

The event was sponsored by State Farm Insurance with participation from Illinois Secretary of State, Emergency Nurses Association, National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives, and the Illinois African American Family Commission.  The event also included live entertainment and appearances by local celebrities.

Learning to drive is a big first step in life’s journey, the ISP is proud to celebrate this milestone with teen drivers while making sure they stay safe on the roads.  Teens who embrace safe driving and respect the rules of the road become responsible adult drivers.

Illinois teens represent approximately 9% of total fatalities occurring on our roadways.  Through education and enforcement, we are confident initiatives like ‘Celebrate My Drive’ will save countless lives.
