What People Are Saying About the Share the Keys Program …
“The Share the Keys program could very well be the most IMPORTANT assembly program attended by high school students and their parents.
“In my opinion, the Share the Keys program will save lives of teen drivers by educating not only teens themselves, but, just as importantly, the parents and guardians who have the greatest impact on enforcing safe driving on a daily basis. The program emphasizes parents and guardians setting good examples for their children as well as encouraging them to have open dialogue and taking responsibility for their teenagers when they hand them a set of keys.
“The statistics for teen crashes in New Jersey are staggering. Share the Keys bridges the gap by imparting the serious nature of responsible driving to teens while reminding parents that driving education doesn't stop once you hand them the keys. The continued responsibility of educating teen drivers still rests with involved parents.
“The Share the Keys program has been incredibly successful as well as helpful to all who have attended. The feedback from the parents as well as the new drivers has been extremely positive. EVERY new driver should attend.
“As a law enforcement officer instructing the Share the Keys program, I see considerable value in reaching young drivers and their parents, as the new driver is at the highest risk for becoming involved in a crash in the first two years of their driving experience. The resources and supportive data provided during the 90-minute presentation give the audience the tools they need to successfully adopt safe driving behaviors.
“Research is telling us STK is a proven winner for parents since their involvement reduces crash risk. STK is also an effective Graduated Driver License teaching tool for new driver education teachers and law enforcement. Parents depend on driver education teachers to be a resource for the GDL. STK provides clarity for safe teen driving behaviors.
“Share the Keys is one of the most comprehensive training programs for parents that are about to have a new teen driver.
