One Wheaton North student’s idea to help teen drivers with special needs know what to do when interacting with police officers has become a special event aimed at helping the community’s teen drivers succeed on the road. This event will be offered in two sessions, with one focused specifically for students with special needs and their parents, and the other for student drivers and their parents.
Community Unit School District 200 and the Wheaton Police Department will host the event on Sunday, April 25 in the Wheaton North High School parking lot. It will cover topics such as:
- What to do if you get pulled over
- Graduated driver’s license laws in Illinois
- How to register for the Smart911 safety program
- Safety demonstrations
The two sessions for this event will be: Session 1, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., will be specifically for students with special needs and their parents; Session 2, from 2-4 p.m., will be for student drivers and their parents. Registration is required at bit.ly/d200driversafety.
