Rumpke and police present teen driver program Thursday | Schools
ALEXANDRIA, KY (FOX19) - Rumpke and Northern Kentucky police officers will present the Students Against Crashes (S.A.C.) safety program to more than 700 students Thursday afternoon at Campbell County High School.
S.A.C. is a Rumpke safety program designed to promote the reduction of motor vehicle accidents through interactive educational training programs. The course allows students to use basic math and science skills to compute distance and speed. Participating students learn about accident reconstruction, appropriate speed, reaction time and safe stopping distances.
“Vehicle accidents are the leading cause of death for drivers age 18 to 24,” said Larry Stone, Rumpke Safety Director. “Rumpke developed this program as an interactive learning tool for inexperienced drivers, encouraging learning by doing.
Students will watch powerful video footage of accidents, create and examine actual skid marks, and participate in open discussion throughout the day. The Campbell County High Students Against Crashes presentation is sponsored by Sutton Rankin Law, PLC.
The Students Against Crashes program was developed in 2005, following a series of fatal accidents involving Talawanda High School students. The program has been presented to more than 3,400 students at 30 schools throughout Ohio and Kentucky. The S.A.C. curriculum is available for instructors at no cost by contacting Rumpke at 1-877-786-7537 extension 3624 or online at www.rumpke.com.
