Teen Victim Impact Program

Milton’s Municipal Court hosts the Teen Victim Impact Program, an educational initiative to reduce teen traffic violations and death in car crashes.

Drivers under 21 accused of traffic violations may attend the two-hour Teen Victim Impact Program in lieu of the six-hour defensive driving course traditionally offered to reduce driver’s license point deductions.

Any Milton resident or their child may also take the course for no cost any time it is offered.

The Teen Victim Impact Program is designed to give judges an educational initiative in lieu of or in addition to fines and probation. It was developed in 2006 and is used by a number of court systems in the metro Atlanta area. The objective, say its creators, is to get rid of the “It won’t happen to me” mindset and reinforce the need to wear seat belts.

The program contains:

  • Real-life stories of teens killed in car crashes, including the cause of the crash and how it could have been prevented
  • A texting video
  • Seatbelt videos
  • A teen car crash victim or family of a victim share their story
  • A question-and-answer session

Classes are held monthly. For more information, visit www.tvip.org.
