On March 6th, the West Johnston High School JCTD club catered a dinner for the 50-210 Fire Department as a thank you for helping out with their annual Mock car crash. Three JCTD students went to help serve food and tea at the fire department's monthly meeting.
Without the 50-210 Fire Department, the club could not put on as many big events at their school. We want to issue a big thanks to them for both helping promote teen driving awareness and for keeping the community safe! #SurviveTheRide
West Johnston High School's SADD and JoCo Teen Drivers hosted the 5th Annual "Mr. West J" pageant on February 16, 2018.
Impaired vision goggles were used in the lobby of the auditorium before the show and during intermission to play corn hole and mini golf to show how impaired you can be while driving drunk. Also, during the pageant they played a game, girls against boys, to ask the audience teen safe driving questions like "Where are you supposed to hold your hands on the steering wheel" and "What are the 5 risk factors for teen driving."
Mr. Hudson Roberts was the overall winner this year and will participate in JoCo community events for the rest of the year! #SurviveTheRide
On February 9, the North Carolina State Highway Patrol, NC Governor's Highway Safety Program, and first responders hosted an event and crash reenactment to launch the "Survive The Drive" rural road safety initiative in Johnston County.

STAY OFF THE ROADS UNLESS YOU ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO USE THEM!
Black Ice and Snow are NO JOKE and can cause drivers to EASILY lose control of their vehicles.
If you cannot avoid commuting, these are some very helpful tips for your safety!
Many of the roadways in Johnston County are covered in dangerous BLACK ICE and SNOW, and much of the precipitation that melts today will refreeze as the sun goe...s down, starting as early as before 5PM. This will make the roads even more dangerous for commuters.
It is best to avoid driving in inclement weather, but if you have to, attached is a graphic with a few tips and tricks.
JoCo Teen Drivers club members from all over the county spread safe driving messages and holiday cheer during the 2017 Smithfield Christmas Parade on Thursday. We hope everyone has a safe and joyous Christmas!
Special thanks to those that participated and helped to make the night a success. Remember, It Takes A Village To #SurviveTheRide.
JoCo Teen Drivers would like for everyone to drive safe this Thanksgiving holiday! Remember that YOU are the best gift you can give your family this holiday season!
Congratulations to the West Johnston High Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) club and their adviser, Amanda Fisher! The club was named the North Caro...lina SADD Chapter of the Year for the third year consecutive year, while Fisher was named Adviser of the Year for the second time!
