Sheriff's Office invites teens to 'Drive with a Cop,' learn road safety Oct. 24; registration now open (Photo) - 09/30/15
Online event registration:

Event release on CCSO website:

The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office, Oregon Impact, and the World of Speed Museum will team up with local teenagers Oct. 24 to teach students the importance of safe driving.

"Drive with a Cop" will be held Saturday, Oct. 24 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Grace Chapel (9600 SW Boeckman Rd., Wilsonville). The event -- in which teens will learn driving maneuvers while driving a safety course with Clackamas County Sheriff's deputies -- is part of National Teen Driver Safety Week, Oct. 18-24.

"A number of Clackamas County teenagers lost their lives in car crashes in the last two years," said Clackamas County Sheriff Craig Roberts. "We want to do our part to keep kids safe, because one life is one too many to lose on the roads."

Motor-vehicle crashes are a leading cause of death for U.S. teens. Fortunately, teen automobile crashes are preventable -- and proven strategies can improve the safety of young drivers on the road.

Carrie Higgins lived the statistic when she lost her daughter, 17-year-old Maddi Higgins, in a fatal car crash on Pete's Mountain Road in West Linn less than two years ago. Deputies say speed was a major factor in the crash.

"The hardest part for me is knowing Maddi's death was preventable," said Carrie Higgins. "I get up every day and focus on what I can do to help save lives."

Higgins will attend the first annual "Drive with a Cop" event at Grace Chapel in Wilsonville. In addition to driving with Sheriff's deputies, teen participants will also learn the effects of impaired driving when they put on "beer goggles" that simulate a .08 blood alcohol range.

World of Speed Museum in Wilsonville, a sponsor of the event, will have a display tent along with a drawing for free tickets to the museum.

Registration is now open for "Drive with a Cop" and will be open to the first 50 teenagers who sign up here:

Parents are welcome to attend.
