The nationally recognized Survive the Drive will be offered Nov. 8 from 7 to 8:30 a.m. in Sherman.

The Sherman Traffic Safety Group will sponsor the program at Sherman School.

The program's primary goal is to reach every newly or soon-to-be licensed teen (or adult) through the use of a multimedia presentation.

The focus will be on the detrimental impact of texting, reading, drinking, phoning and any other activities that remove conscious understanding of the operational hazards of heavy, moving equipment otherwise known as Driving While Oblivious.

Bob Green, a professional driving enthusiast, automotive training and traffic safety specialist, motor sports and automobile race driving instructor, automotive event coordinator, will present the program, as he has to more than 60,000 high school students.

He will be accompanied by Sherman resident Bob Sharp, a former professional race car driver and business entrepreneur.

Sherman School eighth-grade students, alumni and their families and area high school administrations will be invited to attend the free event.

Door prizes and refreshments will be served.

Non-Sherman residents are welcome to attend, but must make a reservation by emailing ShermanTrafficSafety@gmail.com.
