League City Police to offer collision avoidance program for teens
Collision Avoidance Training Program, or CAT, will soon be available for League City teen drivers.
The League City Police Department recently partnered with the National Traffic Safety Academy (NTSA) to offer teen drivers the opportunity to participate in the Collision Avoidance Training Program or CAT. This program is the first of its kind in Texas, according to the press release.
The courses begin on Friday evenings, with a classroom lecture, followed by eight hours of hands-on driving training on Saturdays. The Saturday lessons include driving techniques and tips from League City Police Officers.
Because most car accidents involving teens are considered avoidable, the purpose of the program is to educate teens on potential driving hazards and how to avoid them.
The program is open to League City teens age 16 to 19 who have a valid drivers license, car insurance, and a car to drive. The course is offered monthly.
