SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (WDTN) - Students at Northwestern Middle School in Springfield are giving their parents mock traffic tickets when they they see them districted. Rick Brit is asking his eight grade class to pay close attention to the way their parents drive.
"Car crashes continue to be the number one killer of teens in this country," said Brit.
Northwestern is currently one of four schools across Ohio being piloted for the Ticket Your Parent Program. It's a program that is designed to give students a hands on approach to identify bad and good driving habits by watching their parents. The students received a booklet of tickets.
The National Safety Council is in partnership with the Teen Safe Driving Coalition put this program into place.
Students like Daniel Shoffner, said he is excited about the program. Shoffner had a little advice for drivers making bad decisions on the roads.
"Stay off the phone. Don't eat while driving and watch the road," Shoffner said.
