DETROIT (AP) — AAA Michigan, the Michigan State Police and the Detroit Tigers are teaming up to promote teen-driving safety with an event at Comerica Park in Detroit.

Representatives from each organization plan to speak Thursday morning at the home of the Tigers to outline efforts designed to encourage safe driving among teens this Memorial Day weekend.

State police plan to offer a review of Operation C.A.R.E., its long-running traffic safety initiative. And the Dearborn-based auto club will discuss the state’s upcoming holiday weekend travel.

The Tigers say a teen has won tickets to Friday’s game and will throw out the first pitch.
