Tallahassee Police Department's Traffic Unit officers are providing an engaging classroom setting, for what they call the S.P.E.E.D program.

S.P.E.E.D. (Supportive Parents and Police Educating Early Drivers) is a four-hour interactive, learning experience offered to teens ages 15-20 and their parents/guardians.

TPD says the program focuses on the importance of seatbelt usage and safe driving behaviors.

S.P.E.E.D. includes a practical learning environment with videos, interactive activities and a question/answer session.

This course satisfies the traffic court defensive driving school requirement for a first time traffic violation.

Classes are offered monthly and you can call the TPD Traffic Unit for more details at (850) 891-4665.
