Georgia teens will now have some say on how to educate young drivers about dangerous driving habits.
Governor Nathan Deal said Monday he's forming a Georgia's Commission on Teen Driving. The panel will be made up of at least 15 members between the ages of 15 and 19.
"I think this is kind of really proactive. It's getting the, not only is it helping the students learn, helping the students with the laws, its making the roads safer and two, it's helping these students get an in depth view on the government itself, kind of the other way around," says high school junior Marcus Gouthro.
They will prepare reports to the governor outlining ideas for a statewide strategy to better educate teen drivers on things like drunk driving and texting and driving.
"I think when other young people that might have the same experiences and might have experienced something horrible having to do with drunk driving or something like that can really relate to other high school students and make them really think about it," says high school senior Kaitlyn Yarborough.
The deadline for teen drivers to apply to serve on the commission is September 20th.
