The Pepperell High School Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) has received a $2,500 SADD grant from the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety.  According to a Floyd County Schools media release, the grant is intended to enhance Pepperell High’s existing SADD chapter with the idea that student input into the solution will help alleviate the problem of teen driver fatalities in Georgia.

The Pepperell High SADD chapter educates their school and reaches out to the community on driving safety.  Their activities include seat belt checks, car seat safety checks, homecoming safety activities, prom safety promotions and other events.  Their major event is the ‘Just Drive’ Safe Driving Expo held each April.  The 2013 Driving Expo will be the 4th annual event.

Car crashes are the number one cause of death for teens and drivers ages 15-19.
