Sandy Springs--  More Georgia teenagers are killed in car crashes than in almost any other state.   But there's a completely free of charge way parents can help keep them safe between the wheel.

     "I've only driven a couple of times," new driver Camillah Sbaity told 11Alive.  she's nervous behind the wheel and hasn't had much official training.  So her parents are sending her to a P.R.I.D.E. class taught by the Sandy Springs Police Department. P.R.I.D.E. stands for Parents Reducing Injuries and Driver Error.  The free course is funded by the Governor's Office of Highway Safety and there are several of them around Metro Atlanta that your teenagers can participate in.  If you would like to find out times, places and contact numbers go to this website:

Teens and their parents attend separate sessions, so the kids can ask questions they might not ask if mom and dad were there.  The classes are free, but you must sign up and register.  If you would like more info or help signing up for the Sandy Springs class, email:
