Teen Day Fuquay
April 16, 2016 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
Learn the facts and choose to drive wise! That’s one of the mottos teens will walk away with when they attend Teen Day Fuquay on Saturday April 16 from 11 am – 4 pm at South Park behind the Fuquay-Varina Community Center.
Teen Day Fuquay, an alcohol and distracted driving awareness program sponsored by the Fuquay-Varina Police Department, offers young people, ages 11-18, the opportunity to experience the realities of mixing alcohol and texting with driving using a variety of hands-on, high tech activities to simulate the effects in a safe environment. In too many cases, this experience comes in the real world with horrible consequences.
The first 250 teens to complete the Drive Wise Course will win a free t-shirt! A short list of activities include a driving simulator, the Batmobile, a rescue simulation by the Fuquay-Varina Fire Department, Rock Wall, Seatbelt Convincer (written parental permission required with form available at http://www.teendayfuquay.com), food and music. There will plenty of hands-on experiences. No preaching. Teens surveyed after last year’s event appreciated the message delivery and they got the message. Nearly 100% of those surveyed understand that drinking and driving are a bad idea. Lots of prizes and it’s all FREE!!! Bring a friend!
