Monroe, LA (November 8, 2012) Northeast Louisiana State Farm agents are presenting members of the Louisiana State Police (LSP) with a $2500 grant, today, to support the LSP teen driver safety program “Sudden Impact”.
The presentation will be at the Monroe agency field office at 1pm.
The Sudden Impact program is a three-phase experience for high school students and teen drivers.The three phases involve experiences in a hospital teaching environment; a mock crash site; and a mock courtroom setting with teen participation.The design of the program is to provide realistic experiences that provide a better understanding and acceptance of messages teens hear from adults.
State Farm spokesman, Gary Stephenson, stated, “We commend the Louisiana State Police in their creativity and efforts to bring the realization of the seriousness and responsibility of driving to teens in the state.We believe that the more messaging that teens receive through various avenues, the better the chances are for understanding and awareness”.
