Distracted Driving Class

Distracted Driving is a national concern with cell phones and other electronic devices in every car today. The simple phone call, text message, reading the paper, shaving, putting on make-up, may seem like nothing but it could mean everything to your safety and those around you. New York has mandated any driver found to be using, talking, texting, plugging in an electronic device will receive 5 points on their license. CCE has developed a curriculum to educate drivers on the dangers of distracted driving. Currently CCE offers this class monthly to “court ordered offender’s,” in Saratoga County. This class allows the ADA that is prosecuting the case to reduce the 5 point violation to 3 points upon completion of this class. This class allows participants to learn that Distracted Driving is: visual, cognitive and manual.

CCE offers this class in several ways: Court mandated, in high school health classes, driving classes, agencies that have drivers or drivers that use company cars. If you are interested in this class, or are court mandated to take this class, please call our safety educator at 518-885-8995 x 228 to schedule your class or time.
