CTE criminal justice students teach safe driving.

VICTORY TOWNSHIP — Students in the West Shore Educational Service District’s Career and Technical Education (CTE) criminal justice program are competing in the S4SD (Strive 4 a Safer Drive) campaign sponsored by Ford Driving Skills for Life and the Michigan Office of Highway Safety Planning.  S4SD  is a teen driving initiative aimed at reducing serious traffic crashes, injuries, and fatalities among Michigan’s most inexperienced drivers – teens.  Participating schools receive $1,000 to develop and implement a student-led, peer-to-peer traffic safety awareness campaign.

Today, the students provided a presentation to their peers in the West Shore Community College Technical Center vestibule. Their exhibit featured an intoxicated driving simulator, drunk driving goggles, literature about safety belt use, and popcorn. The students were assisted by troopers from the Michigan State Police Hart Post.

The students also created a billboard that is on display on US 10-31 between Scottville and Ludington.

On March 16, students will host a booth at the Family Affair event at Mason County Central High School where students will have contact with over 3000 students, parents, and community members.  Students will educate people on seat belt safety, have games, prizes and a raffle to encourage greater participation. 

The students received donations from local businesses to help support the campaign.
