Graves Mistakes: Teen Distracted Driving Program

Grave Mistakes is a teen distracted driving program put on through Johnson County MED-ACT, featuring actual call scene photos, video footage, and stories to help newly licensed teenagers understand the consequences of their choices while driving.

There is no fee for the Grave Mistakes program as it is apart of our community outreach programming for the citizens of Johnson County. We contact high schools, and organize time during their school year to come out to give this important 45 minute presentation and answer students questions about distracted driving.

The topics include:

  • texting
  • seatbelts
     
  • speeding
  • road conditions
  • alcohol
  • 3 ways of distraction (visual, manual and cognitive)  

As the emergency services providers for Johnson County, we want teens to know that keeping their mind on the road is one of the most important parts of their driving experience. Every choice they have while behind the wheel has some sort of consequence and we hope that they don’t make a Grave Mistake.

please call 9-1-1
