Albany - - Have a teenager who will hit the road soon? You and your child may want to take advantage of a free program to make sure both of you have a good handle on road rules.

Dougherty County Police are gearing up for their PRIDE program (Parents Reducing Incidents of Driver Error).

It's a free two and a half hour course. Officers say it helps parents understand requirements for their children to get a license and it helps young drivers stay safe.

"Dougherty County did a study of teens and crashes. And with this program being instituted they've dropped significantly, so it is successful," says Lt. Tom Jackson.

The class is held the first Wednesday of every month. For more information on how to sign up, you can call DCP at 229-430-6600. More information on the program is available here.
