Parents as Driving Partners

“Press Release”

“200 Families Join Parents as Driving Partners”

An initiative that began earlier this year which emphases the role of parents in promoting safe driving habits in teens has reached a milestone with more than 200 teens and their parents/guardians signing the Putnam County teen driving agreement contained in a booklet which consists of basic guidelines to assist parents in their role as driving partners.

Earlier October the Putnam County Youth Bureau presented County Clerk Michael Bartolotti and the Putnam County DMV Office in Brewster with a plaque to express their gratitude for distributing the booklet to both parents as well as their teens as part of a comprehensive program addressing safe driving.
