Southern Indiana program helps teens learn to drive safely

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Slamming the brakes on bad driving by teens.

That's the goal of the Rule the Road program in southern Indiana that's teaching young drivers to be safe behind the wheel.

New drivers are allowed to take cars through an obstacle course. In the process, the drivers learn how to brake and turn in split seconds.

The event keeps some teens coming back for years.

"My favorite thing is drifting the Sheriff's cruiser. I think that's really, really fun and not too many people get to do a doughnut in a police car, so that's really fun," said Derek Meeks, a high school senior.

Other teens put on goggles that simulate drunk-driving.

High schoolers also took a ride down a ramp that tested the strength of a seat belt.
