Organizers of the second annual Teen Driver Safety Seminar hopes to build on the success of last year's forum. Nearly 200 teens and their parents attended last year's program that included presentations by law officers about the consequences of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Convicted drunk driver Annie Bahr will be a part of the program again this year. The young Pine River woman spent six months in jail after her friend, 20-year old Jackie Saddler of Nisswa died in an alcohol-related crash. Brainerd Insurance President Pat Smith said the percentage of fatal crashes involving 16-20 year old drivers is among the highest in the nation. The seminar tries to arm both parents and teens with the information they need to be safer on the road. The seminar runs from 5-5:30pm on Tuesday, January 8th at the Northland Arboretum in Baxter. The seminar is free but you must register ahead of time. The program includes pizza, beverages, door prizes and tee-shirts. Call Sara at 218-829-3558 to sign up.
