Car crashes remain the number one killer of teens in the US and Georgia.

These days with cell phones, teens have even more ways to get in trouble behind the wheel, so Friday, The Governor's Office of Highway Safety brought Ford's driving skills for life program to Macon.

It gives teens a chance to see just how dangerous texting or impared driving can be without putting them and other drivers lives on the line.

In addition to an obstacle course for texting drivers to try, teens also got to experience a impared driving simulator too so they could experience the impact of drunk driving on their skills as well as training on speed management.

In addition to the serious message was delivered a fun atmosphere complete with refreshments.
