Zimny Insurance is proud to bring Time2Drive® — a teen driving safety event sponsored by Allied Insurance — to Jefferson High School on Wednesday, May 21st, 2014. 

This fun, interactive event helps teens better understand the risks young drivers face when they get behind the wheel. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (2010), motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for U.S. teens — accounting for more than one in three deaths in this age group.

Teens will:

  • Get behind the wheel of a driving simulator
  • Have the chance to try on Fatal Vision goggles
  • Learn ways to become better drivers and encourage them to think about the consequences of poor choices they might make on the road
  • Become better educated regarding teen driving laws in Minnesota
  • Make Douglas County a safer place and help prevent the possibility of future tragedies

Zimny Insurance and Allied Insurance all have the same goal — to help teens be safer on the roads. Time2Drive is a great way to reinforce basic tips that every teen and parent should know. We’re excited to bring this program to Alexandria.”
