Our Opinion: Program helps teens become safer drivers

If you’re a parent, you probably tremble the first time – and every time – your son or daughter gets behind the wheel.

A safe driving program sponsored by the Tucson Police Foundation may help ease your mind.

The Safe Teen Accident Reduction Training is sponsored by the police foundation, the Tucson Police Department and State Farm insurance.

It provides teens with training at the same track where police learn their driving techniques.

And such training is needed. In Arizona, drivers 15 to 18 years old were involved in nearly 21,000 crashes in 2006.

Good for the foundation, the police department and State Farm in taking proactive steps to reduce this toll. A well-trained driver is a better driver.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.

For all of the stories that were archived by the Tucson Citizen newspaper's library in a digital archive between 1993 and 2009, go to Morgue Part 2
