The Georgia Governor’s Office of Highway Safety has awarded a $2,400 highway safety grant to Evans High School to enhance its chapter of Students Against Destructive Decisions.
The grant, according to a news release, is “part of an ongoing program to involve students in efforts to reduce injury and death to young drivers.” The release also said student organizations such as SADD can help reduce the problem of teen highway fatalities.
“The Governor’s Office of Highway Safety is committed to changing the tragic trend of teen driver deaths in Georgia,” said GOHS Director Bob Dallas. “The fact is that the rate of teen driver deaths in Georgia and across the country needs to change.
“I believe this active SADD chapter at Evans High School can help us achieve our lifesaving goal of lowering teen driver crash, injury and fatality rates statewide,” Dallas added.
