BUFORD — Through stories of personal tragedy and concerns about their generation, a group of teens from around Georgia presented recommendations Monday on improving driving habits among their peers. Among the Governor’s Commission on Teen Driving’s suggestions was a call to reform the state’s Alcohol and Drug Awareness Program in high schools, starting with changing its name to the Impaired Driving Awareness Program. “This alteration of program name reflects our sentiment that drunk driving is no longer the only problem on our roadways in the state of Georgia,” states a seven-page report issued by the 22-member panel.
