Officer Griffin’s Top 5 Driving Safety Tips


  1. Always wear your seatbelt – Seatbelts reduce serious crash-related injuries by about half (
  2. Limit your distractions – This ranges from music to having a lot of friends in the car.
  3. Be patient and pay attention – “Do not speed to save time. Getting pulled over will cost you a lot more time than being more patient.”
  4. Be mindful of pedestrians in the parking lot – “There are a lot of middle and elementary school students in and around the parking lot, so it’s important for student drivers to drive slow.”
  5. If you’re driving on 155th Street and heading to Center Street, make sure you stop fully at the stop sign – “Students tend to roll through that stop sign, and it often causes problems.”
