DETROIT — (WWJ) Events are being held throughout Metro Detroit today to try to help teenagers learn safe driving practices.

“Car crashes are the number one killer of our teens in this country,” says State Farm spokeswoman Angie Rinock. “That’s a serious business. That’s something that doesn’t have to be.”

State Farm is sponsoring a program called Celebrate My Drive which helps teenagers learn about safety behind the wheel, while also having fun.

There are a number of different events across the country and throughout the metro area.

  • Royal Oak Celebrate My Drive, Northwood Shopping Mall 30955 North Woodward, Royal Oak, MI 48067, 11 am to 4 pm
  • Canton Celebrate My Drive, Home Depot 39825 Ford Road, Canton, MI 48187, 10 am to 4 pm
  • Clinton Township Celebrate My Drive, Macomb Community College M-59 & Garfield University Center Parking Lot 5B, Clinton Township, MI 48036, 11 am to 4 pm
  • Flint Celebrate My Drive, State Farm 2171 S Linden Road, Flint, MI 48503, 11 am to 4 pm
  • Lansing Celebrate My Drive, Wal-Mart Westside 409 N Marketplace Blvd , Lansing, MI 48917, 10 am to 2 pm
