The Family, Career and Community Leaders of America chapter from Shelby High School hosted I Know Everything" teen driving safety program Tuesday at the high school.

The integrated teen driver safety program highlights the issues of drunk driving and distracted driving and reiterates that parents have the most influence on their teen's driving behaviors.

More than 100 students participated in the program that consist of a game show style event in which the students used handheld devices to answer questions about safe driving practices.

The students answers are collected anonymously and will be part of a nationwide survey of teen drivers from high schools across the United States. The answers from the game will help The Century Council bring awareness about teen driver safety.

"As a principal I am always looking for ways to keep the students of Shelby High School safe," said John Gies, principal of Shelby High School.

"When The Century Council and FCCLA asked to host an IKnowEverything event on our campus I was excited and I hope that it helps them remember to pat attention one hundred percent of the time," Gies said.

"Teen driver safety is a really important issue and we are excited to carry out this nationwide survey of teen driver," said Ralph Blackman, President and CEO of The Century Council. "The responses we received at Shelby High School and the rest of the schools nationwide will help us better understand the gaps in prepardness of new teen drivers in the United States and we can work to address those gaps through education in the future."


Studies show that motor vehicle crashes remain the number one killer of teens ages 15 to 20. Teens have the highest crash rate of any age group in the U.S.
