Teenagers are four-times more likely to have an accident on the road than adults.

The Troy Police Department has rolled out a collision avoidance training program--also known as CAT-- to give teens more training and hopefully get those statistics down.

The Troy Police Department's Collision Avoidance Training program gives teens a deeper look down the road.

It isn't your typical driver's education class- this course is for teens who already have a license and have had a taste of driving reality.

It teaches them about speed, traffic laws, and basic car maintenance.

The students spent Friday in a four hour classroom session before driving through obstacles on Saturday.

Several courses were set up at the troy municipal airport.

The police department plans to hold the class once a month and keep it to four students each time.

If you are interested in signing your teen up, you can fill out the forms online at www.troypd.com.
