Program Description

The Problem:

Distracted and/or irresponsible driving habits result in millions of car crashes every year.

Our Solution:

Educate the community on driving best practices and occupant protection to promote positive driving skills and increase seat belt use in order to decrease the number of motor vehicle-related fatalities.

How We Do it:

Motorists who appear for a first-time driving infraction in traffic court have the option to choose a pre-trial plea by attending SCOPE’s three-hour educational courses on dangerous driving, unlicensed motorists, and seat belt and car seat use. EAC Network staff, in conjunction with Suffolk County Highway Police Officers and Stony Brook University’s Chief Trauma Surgeon, facilitate the courses and educate participants on dangerous driving habits such as speeding, aggressive driving, DWI/DWAI, and cellphone use as well as occupant protection (seat belt use and child safety restraints). Pre- and post-tests are administered to participants to measure their knowledge of laws and positive driving behaviors.

How You Can Help:

SCOPE is in need of a Smart Board projector and a closed circuit television for safety messages. To support SCOPE with a gift, click here or call (516) 539-0150 x117.

The Outcomes of SCOPE

Participants report an increased knowledge of traffic safety laws and positive driving skills, which makes them more engaged drivers and reduces the risk of accidents.
