RoadWise returns for The Research Foundation and young drivers

RoadWise

KANSAS CITY, Mo., (Apr. 4, 2022) – The Research Foundation is offering RoadWise, a free program for young drivers ages 14-18, for the first time since 2019. The class emphasizes the importance of wearing a seat belt and making good, safe decisions behind the wheel.

According to the Missouri Department of Transportation and Kansas Department of Transportation, teens are 10 times more likely to be in a fatal car accident than adults with motor vehicle crashes are the number one cause of death among teenagers in the US.

RoadWise 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. Attendees meet young people who have suffered from permanent brain or spinal cord injuries because 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.

The Research Foundation is hosting RoadWise from 1-4:45 p.m. Friday, June 10 at Research College Nursing. Registration is free but required to attend. Parents and guardians can reserve their young drivers spot in the class by visiting theresearchfoundationkc.org/roadwise. To learn more, call 816-276-4900.
