Donations up to 25-thousand dollars from Continental allowed South Carolina’s Safety Council to extend devices to York and Lancaster Counties.

Lancaster Superintendent Doctor Gene Moore says the program is more than necessary in his district.

The program will foster in 400 new students this weekend who will have to participate in order to gain driving privileges on and off campus.  Lancaster Sheriff Barry Faile says the program allows for education and interaction.

York Superintendent Doctor Vernon Prosser was one of the first administrators in the state to implement Alive at 25 when he was in Spartanburg.  And now he has the opportunity to extend this educational practice to his students in York County.

Prosser says the program engages students in safety driving practices which is essential especially among high school students.

According to South Carolina National Safety Council Executive Director Brooke Russell, 164 young adults died last year on South Carolina’s roadways.

Alive at 25 is progressively working to dramatically lower that number.
