THSO and Nissan Partner for Teen Driver Safety Across Region

TENNESSEE (WDEF) – The Tennessee Highway Safety Office (THSO), along with with Nissan North America, is sponsoring free ThinkFast Interactive programs for schools located in high-crash areas this fall.

The ThinkFast Interactive program is an hour-long, comprehensive session addressing all matters related to Tennessee teen drivers, including traffic rules, regulations and penalties; Tennessee Minor in Possession laws; distracted driving; and more.

The program employs active and experiential learning that provides students with memory hooks to promote retention and retrieval.

Program instructors use multi-digit, wireless remotes to teach large bodies of students.

These programs utilize experiential learning in teaching teen driver safety to prevent teen crashes, injuries and fatalities.

In 2016, more than 22,000 Tennessee traffic crashes involved drivers under age 21, according to crash data provided by the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security’s TITAN Division.
