Santa Rosa County Deputy Thomas Wilkie will be teaching a motorcycle safety and awareness program to all drivers’ education classes in Santa Rosa County high schools.
The next presentation is at Pace High School on Tuesday, Feb. 6 from 7:30 to 11:15 a.m. in room 803.
The course, offered in conjunction with the Sheriff’s Office, the Santa Rosa County School System, and ABATE (American Bikers Aimed Toward Education) - a statewide non-profit organization of motorcycle enthusiasts from all walks of life.
This program has been taught to Pace High School students over the past two years and is being extended to all other high schools within the county.
The purpose of this program is not to teach a student how to ride a motorcycle but to help them pay more attention and help prevent anyone from getting hurt or killed.
