Promoting Educated Drivers In Cumming, Georgia

Car driver woman happy showing car keys out windowThe Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office has recently adopted, and is pleased to announce, the formation of the S.T.O.P.P.E.D. Program. Developed by a sheriff’s office in New York, this program is designed to help notify parents when their underage child has been pulled over for a traffic violation.

The office states that the leading cause of death for people aged 15-20 is auto accidents, and that “Over 3,000 drivers between 16-18 years of age die in the United States each year as a result of car crashes.”

This voluntary service aims to reduce the number of young drivers involved in car crashes. Letting parents know what is happening on the road with their children is the primary goal of the S.T.O.P.P.E.D. program.

It works by allowing parents to register with the Forsyth County Sheriff’s office any vehicle which will be driven by their underage child. An identification decal is placed on the inside of the rear window of every car that is registered. If that car is pulled over while being driven by someone under the age of 18, a card will be filled out by the deputy containing the following information:

•    Time and location of stop
•    Driver’s name and the number of passengers
•    Reason for the stop
•    Whether a traffic citation was issued

These citations will then be mailed directly to the parents of these drivers to alert them of the traffic stop and to encourage dialogue in the families to reduce traffic violations and, ultimately, accidents.

Please read this article for more information.

The Cumming, GA auto accident attorneys at Boling Rice LLC are proud to help spread the word of this beneficial program. Keeping our children safe on the road is the goal of any young driver’s parents, and we support them in doing so.
