Congratulations to Riverside High School for joining the new You are in Control program. As a teen driver, you are in Ohio's most at risk groups when it comes to becoming involved in a traffic crash. In 2011, 161 young adult drivers, between the ages of 16-20, were involved in fatal traffic crashes on Ohio's roadways. This is compared to 160 fatal crases in 2010 and 177 in 2009.
You are in Control is a teen driver safety program with local high schools in partnership with the Ohio State Highway Patrol (OSHP) and Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA). The goal of the program is to have each of you inform and educate your classmates of the dangers new drivers face. The program focuses on the importance of your decision making and reminding each other that You are in Control when behind the wheel.
The program combines traditional marketing methods with social media to communicate the You are in Control message to students.
