RCA Hosts Safe Driver Workshop – for Parents
Rosemont High Parent Cheryle Sutton reports on the ideas generated in the discussion group on graduated drivers licenses that was part of the RCA hosted workshop on safe teen driving.
As part of its Safe Teen Driver program, sponsored by a grant from State Farm, RCA conducted a special workshop for parents as part of Rosemont High’s annual PTA meeting. Several dozen parents and some students participated and learned about how to help beginning drivers develop expert driving skills – and of course, stay safe and alive.
Many ideas were generated and shared by attendees as they thought about their own experiences behind the wheel and how they could convey their wisdom to their students. And the students themselves added valuable insights that helped the parents. The program was conducted by the Safety Center, Inc. located on Bradshaw Rd. In addition to the learning, attendees benefited from a drawing for a variety of prizes including driving simulator time to free behind the wheel classes. RCA will be scheduling more safe teen driving programs in the months ahead, so watch for announcements.
ALERT: Credit Card Scamming Continues
Apparently there has been a credit card scam going around in which you get a call from a person purporting to be from your credit card company’s fraud investigation unit asking to verify a charge made to your card. He already has most of your card and personal info, but just asks for the security number on the back. If you provide that, suddenly your card IS hit with the fraudulent charge. So again, NEVER give out any personal or financial information over the phone unless you know for a fact with whom you are speaking. Even then it is better to place the call yourself to your card company’s fraud unit to verify the problem and have them advise on how to remedy the breach of your security.
And it is also helpful to verify any suspicious story, request or deal by researching it on www.snopes.com, which tracks and reports on all sorts of scams and frauds, and can verify whether some stories or urban legends are true or not.
