ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- A Georgia parent-teen driver education program has been selected for inclusion in a national publication highlighting innovative programs helping reduce crashes involving teen drivers.

The University of Georgia says the Parents Reducing Injuries and Driver Error, or PRIDE, program is one of five to be included in "Curbing Teen Driver Crashes: An In-Depth Look at State Novice Driver Initiatives." The publication by the Governors Highway Safety Association includes a detailed look at what states are doing to address teen driver safety.

The Georgia program was developed in 2003 by the Georgia Traffic Injury Prevention Institute, a grant-funded program in the University of Georgia College of Family and Consumer Sciences.

The free program is a two-hour course that addresses the driving attitudes, knowledge and behavior of parents and teens.
