Elk Grove teenagers and their parents are invited to attend a program that aims to improve driver safety by focusing on the consequences of bad decisions behind the wheel.

A special presentation of “Moment of Impact” is scheduled Tuesday in the Elk Grove City Council Chambers, 8400 Laguna Palms Way. The 90-minute program will focus on the impact of a driver’s selfish decision. The session will include feature stories, photos, clothing and the vehicle two brothers were in when an impaired driver crossed into their lane and killed them, according to an Elk Grove Police Department news release.

Police say car crashes are the No. 1 killer of people younger than 34, and teenagers are the most at risk.

“Moment of Impact” is offered by the Police Department in cooperation with the Sacramento County District Attorney’s office and the California Office of Traffic Safety.

Seating is limited. For reservations, call Officer Jorge Benitez at (916) 478-8125, or email jbenitez@elkgrovepd.org.
