SGI says new drivers are the traffic safety spotlight for June
Tyler McMurchy, SGI’s manager for media relations says police will be watching for new drivers and riders disobeying the restrictions under their respective Graduated Driver’s Licence program.
McMurchy says the message for new drivers, and those about to take their test is simple: practice.
“The importance of knowing the rules of the road and knowing your restrictions,” said McMurchy. “Knowing what you can and cannot do and getting as much practice as you can.”
McMurchy says short term planning can create a long term success for young drivers.
“”It’s not just about passing the test.” said McMurchy. “It’s about being a safe driver – when they’re young, when they’re not so young – for the rest of their lives.”
McMurchy adds one of the most important things for new drivers and riders to know is there is absolutely zero-tolerance for alcohol or drugs before driving.
