RoadWise is a FREE program for young drivers 14-18, emphasizing the importance of wearing a seat belt and making good, safe decisions behind the wheel.
Attendees begin the class by following the path of a car crash victim at a trauma center. Hospital staff share their experiences with crash victims in the emergency room, radiology, intensive care, and physical therapy. Students meet young people who have suffered from permanent brain or spinal cord injuries as a result of a motor vehicle crash. The class ends with the Missouri State Highway Patrol Troopers talk about working crash sites and making death notifications to families.
Participants are asked to arrive by 7:45 a.m. for check-in and must present their photo ID. The class is free of charge.
