Alive at 25 is an innovative, young-driver intervention program that bridges the gap between what teens learn in drivers’ education and what behaviors and skills they need to become responsible, crash-free drivers. Through interactive media segments, workbook exercises, class discussions and role playing, young drivers learn how to take control of situations by understanding the consequence of their actions. It offers a balanced approach to help teens not only regulate their driving behavior, but also help them deal with the actual issues that can influence their driving behavior.
