Effingham deputies hold teen driving classes

EFFINGHAM CO., GA (WTOC) -

The Effingham County Sheriff's Office put their focus on teen drivers on Saturday.

The Traffic Enforcement Unit held two Georgia Teens Ride with Pride courses at the Effingham County courthouse. The course's goal is to help parents and new teen drivers, ages 14-16, learn what they need to do during the 40 hours of supervised practice driving time.

"The Teen Pride class is important for teens to attend with their parents, so we can educate both teens and parents on how to become a better driver, a safer driver, and a more responsible driver," said Kathy Witherington, Deputy, ECSO.

The Effingham County Sheriff's Office is one of a few agencies in the state of Georgia who have certified deputies that can host Georgia Teens Ride with Pride courses.
