A new biz in Rye wants to combat the scary statistic that car crashes are the leading cause of death among U.S. teenagers.
Fresh Green Light just opened its doors with the message that high school driver’s education classes are not enough to teach teens how to be safe drivers.
The program touts longer behind-the-wheel training hours than high school driver’s ed, in addition to classroom and vehicle simulator lessons, which give teens a glimpse of all the things that can go wrong on the road.
Fresh Green Light also offers packages for nannies, seniors and adults who need a refresher course.
