EFFINGHAM CO., GA (WTOC) -

Effingham County Sheriff's Office is working to keep teen driver's safe in Effingham County.

The ECSO Traffic Enforcement Unit will be hosting another Georgia Teens Ride with P.R.I.D.E course.

P.R.I.D.E. stands for Parents Reducing Injuries and Driver Error.

This is a free, two-hour course designed to help parents and their new (or soon to be new) teen drivers learn what they need to do during the 40 hours of supervised practice driving time. However, this course does not count toward the required 40 hours. 

"This course has been in very high demand since ECSO began hosting it this past year and there are only 9 seats left for July's class." said David Ehsanipoor, Effingham County Sheriff's Office Public Information Officer. "It's a win-win situation for everybody and it's free. It's a great educational opportunity for the parents and their teenage drivers, and people that may be driving in a couple years. Our goal is to save lives, reduce accidents, and reduce injuries. If this course saves one life, then it's definitely worth it to us."

The class will be held July 9 from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m.
