Teen Driving Equation Program Hosted Teen Safety Day at Mount Sinai High School Thanks to $30,000 Grant from State Farm®

Guys in red; Teen Driving EquationMount Sinai, NY – October 13, 2017 – EAC Network’s Teen Driving Equation program once again hosted a Teen Safety Day at Mount Sinai High School to promote safe driving and discourage distracted driving among teens.

The Teen Driving Equation program cultivates and enforces positive driving skills and responsibilities among teens so they develop safe driving habits. By creating a collaboration between parents, teens, and the community at large, the program helps teens understand the crucial role they play to prevent motor vehicle crashes through experiential events.

This vital program would not be possible without the generous support of State Farm®, who recently granted EAC Network with another annual contribution of $30,000.

“We were very excited to collaborate again with Mount Sinai High School and State Farm® for this informative yet fun event,” said Rachel Lugo, Division Director of Family & Vocational Services at EAC Network. “We’re so grateful to our community partners who help put this together including State Farm agent Stephanie Sgroi, The Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office, the New York State Troopers, and 106.1 WBLI.”

Mount Sinai students simulated distracted and impaired driving on a safe, monitored, and pre-determined course on campus. They experienced high-priority topics such as texting while driving and driving while intoxicated or under the influence of drugs through the use of special blurred goggles.
