Safe Driving Days

The Idaho State Police Commercial Vehicle Safety Section is proud to announce the Second Annual Safe Driving Days on May 18th and 19th. Our goal is to attract teens and their families, so they can learn more about the dangers that texting and other distractions cause for drivers. The event will be held at the Idaho State Police Facility, 700 S Stratford Drive in Meridian, ID from 11 am to 7 pm on the 18th, and 9 am to 5 pm on the 19th.

We are kicking off the event with a texting obstacle course challenge and we're looking for volunteers that are willing to put their skills to the test on Friday, May 18th at 11:30 am. If you think you are up for the challenge or know someone who might be, please call us to reserve your spot.

Our goal is to reduce the number of people that are injured or killed each year in crashes caused by distractions. Although the texting obstacle course might be a lighthearted approach to demonstrate the dangers distractions cause, we take our commitment to safety very seriously and like you, are working to help young drivers learn how to be safe.
