Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Safe on the Roads

Defensive Driving

Defensive Driving is a driving method utilizing strategies that enable motorists to address identified hazards. These strategies go well beyond instruction on basic traffic laws and procedures. Taking defensive driving classes helps individuals learn driving skills that can reduce car crashes and fatalities.
Driver Education

Teen and Adult Driver Education courses are taught by highly trained instructors who have years of experience. Students learn: how to prevent head-on, rear-end, and intersection collisions as well as preventing pedestrian, train, bicycle, motorcycle, animal, and fixed object accidents. These courses also provide information on passing safely, use of child restraints and safety belts, and explores the dangers of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

In 2012, Nebraska, teenage drivers accounted for almost a quarter of all reported crashes and over 10% of all traffic fatalities. These numbers are even more shocking considering teens only represented 6.1% of all licensed drivers. The Nebraska Office of Highway Safety confirms that teens who complete driver education are less likely to be issued a citation or be involved in an accident.
