LAYTON — Nineteen Layton High School seniors may be better drivers after participating in the Utah Highway Patrol’s “Teen Driving Challenge.”

The UHP has offered the course to students at a number of Davis County high schools, and has worked with Layton High students throughout the year to help them understand the importance of wearing a seatbelt and of driving safely.

The students selected to participate in the challenge met at the Utah Department of Public Safety’s Emergency Vehicle Operations Track in Lehi. They drove police vehicles and dealt with real-life scenarios involving accident avoidance, skid control, evasive maneuvers, backing, and the importance of wearing a seatbelt while driving, said UHP Sgt. Ted Tingey.

“It helped me conquer my fear of driving,” said one of the participating students, Megan Hadley.
