16 and 24.
Alive at 25 is a survival course developed by the National Safety Council and is designed to prevent the number one killer of teens, automobile crashes. Alive at 25 is taught by off duty Deputy Sheriffs and Municipal Police Officers. The course is delivered in one 4 hour program which focuses on the behaviors and decision-making paradigms that young drivers and passengers display behind the wheel. Instructors hold candid conversations with students about what can happen if they practice risky behavior or make other poor decisions in an automobile. A video from the family of a former Westlake student who was killed in automobile crash is shown and discussed.
In a recent study by the Colorado State Patrol, 93% of Alive at 25 participants said they would change their driving behavior afterwards. In comparison to their peer programs, graduates have experienced an over 72% decrease in crash fatalities. Alive at 25 teaches young drivers important decision-making skills for staying safe behind the wheel.
