Plymouth, MA (PressExposure) November 12, 2009 -- As the owner of King Collision Center, Bruce King has seen the end result of many crashes involving young drivers. Itâs a trend thatâs escalated in recent years with the advent of cell phones and texting. Thatâs why King Collision has partnered with Commerce Insurance and Plymouth Public Schools and Plymouth Police Department on a safe driving campaign for Plymouth high school students.
To kick off the campaign, King Collision, with the help of Commerce Insurance, placed a smashed car on Long Pond Road as a reminder to all drivers of what can happen when youâre not focused on the road.
âWeâve got an epidemic out there with all drivers but particularly those new to driving. Thereâs too much speed and too many distractions and itâs a recipe for disaster,â said King. âWe developed the Plymouth Safe Driving campaign to try and get the message out to young drivers that the only crash courses they should be taking are in school.â
In addition to the smashed car, which will appear at high traffic areas throughout Plymouth, the campaign also offers safe driving tips via its Web site, [http://www.plymouthsafedriving.org]. The site includes a contract for young drivers and their parents. The contract acts as the young driverâs pledge to drive responsibly.
Plymouth high school students who turn in a signed contract to their principal at either Plymouth North or South high school will be entered into a drawing for In Controlâs Crash Prevention Training course (a $350 value!). In addition to the winner, everyone who signs a contract and submits it to their respective principal is eligible to take the In Control Crash Prevention course at a 10 percent discount (see [http://www.plymouthsafedriving.org] for details). Not only does taking part in this course provide young drivers invaluable training, but it can also earn them or their parents a discount on auto insurance.
âWe hope that students and parents take advantage of this great opportunity to get the training needed to create safer young drivers, which benefits us all,â said Gary Maestas, Plymouth Public Schools Superintendent.
The Plymouth Safe Driving campaign will be an ongoing effort to educate young drivers. For updates on latest events and activities related to this program and additional safety information, please periodically visit [http://www.plymouthsafedriving.org].
