Teen Driver Safety
Teen Driver Safety made possible by State Farm

To engage on the topic of safety with groups of 50 or more 14-18 year olds who will be obtaining their drivers licenses in the near future or are new drivers, HFD has pedal karts and distractions to simulate divided attention and “drunk” goggles to simulate cognitive distraction while teens operate the pedal karts.  The experience teaches teens (without any lectures) that their perceptions and response times are far different from what they believed those would be if driving distracted, while intoxicated, or while under the influence of drugs.

  • Requestors must have adequate space (track or other smooth path).
  • Request must be made at least 6 weeks in advance.
  • Please, note that your request is not guaranteed to be fulfilled. You will be contacted once we receive your request.

To schedule and/or for more information, please send an email with your event information to the HFD Public Affairs Office at hfdpaevents@houstontx.gov
