The Coral Springs Police Department will once again recognize local teenagers who go without a traffic citation or an “at-fault” accident during the school year as part of their Safe Driving Teen Initiative.
Students are eligible to apply for recognition if they attend Coral Glades High School, Coral Springs Charter School, Coral Springs Christian Academy, Coral Springs High School, or J. P. Taravella High School.
Teenagers must have a valid Florida Driver’s License between the dates of August 22, 2011, to April 1, 2012. Copies of driving records will be verified by the Coral Springs Police Department. Students interested must complete a Coral Springs Police Department Teen Safe Driving Program Form, which will be provided by the School Resource Officer. This form must be turned into the appropriate School Resource Officer by April 20, 2012.
Students that meet the criteria will receive a gift card, along with a certificate of recognition from the Chief of Police. Seniors will also receive a cord to wear during their graduation ceremony. Over 150 students were recognized last school year for their safe driving efforts.
This initiative supplements the existing efforts towards safe teen driving, where parents are provided letters informing them that the City of Coral Springs Police Department issued their teenaged driver a citation or warning.
