Distracted teen drivers test their driving skills

High school students from across the state were invited to Aloha Stadium Saturday to improve their driving skills.

The annual event puts teens through real-world driving scenarios so they learn how to avoid serious trouble out on our roads.

There were several challenges including collision avoidance, learning to avoid blind spots and something called the skid monster.

“So the skid monster at slow speeds, will cause a skid. And we don’t want them to get in that skid so transition pegs targeting to avoid that as much as possible,” said drivers education teacher Richard Salbro.

“Really pay attention when I’m driving, really stay off the phone, not be distracted, make sure you can completely pay attention to the road,” said high school student Brandon Pitts.

Cash awards are also given to the schools of the students that score the highest in a written and two driving tests.
