BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) - Even though they're a few years away from getting a license, some Brunswick County 8th graders got a lesson in safety behind the wheel Thursday.
Several community groups and organizations, including highway patrol, combined efforts to educate students about the dangers of drinking and driving.
They also heard about the challenges of driving around big trucks on local roads and the need to wear safety belts when driving or riding.
The Safe Driving Program will travel around the area to other middle schools.
