Riverside County health officials have been awarded two grants totaling $277,500 to encourage young motorists not to drive when drunk, distracted, or drowsy. Public Health officials will also encourage youngsters to promote safety among their peers and educate parents on the dangers of unsafe driving practices.
The Be Wiser Youth Traffic Safety Project funding ($170,000) will be used at 12 middle and high schools throughout Riverside County for education and training, according to Rebecca Antillon, program coordinator who oversees the grants with Riverside University Health System (RUHS) Public Health.
The College Community Against Drugged, Drunk, and Distracted Driving funding ($107,500) will be used at four college campuses in Riverside County.
“Young people are the future and it is important they are protected through education and training when they get behind the wheel,” said Kim Saruwatari, director of RUHS-PH.
Funding is administered by RUHS-PH and provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety. Administration. To learn more about the Injury Prevention Services Program, visit www.rivcoips.org.
