(IDG) -- The Allstate Foundation, Freeway Watch and Sierra On-Line today announced a strategy to increase safe driving behavior and decrease drunk driving among Utah teenagers by the year 2002. This strategy includes statewide initiatives for empowering citizens to recognize and report drunk drivers and for adopting a new, interactive teaching tool for Utah high school driver's education courses by 2002.

Sandra Daumke, Regional Corporate Relations Manager for the Allstate Insurance in the Phoenix Region, will present a donation to Suzanne Peterson, Freeway Watch President, to purchase 150 copies of Driver's Education '99 from Sierra On-Line, part of the Cendant Software family, for high school driver education teachers throughout Utah. The Allstate Foundation plans to include Driver's Education '99, a risk-free 3D driving simulation for the PC, in all Utah high school driver education curriculums in order to increase and promote safe and defensive driving behavior among teens.

Lt. Governor Olene Walker will read a Proclamation entitled "Operation 2002: Youth Safe Driving." This proclamation urges citizens to make Utah a safer place to live, work and raise a family by learning how to recognize and report DUI drivers and teaching youth safe driving behavior. In addition, Mary Phillips, MADD Vice-President Utah Chapter, will talk about her daughter Lizz who was killed by a drunk, unlicensed sixteen-year-old driver. There will be a demonstration of Driver's Education '99 and the Freeway Watch web page (link below).

Driver's Education '99 will be available in September on CD-ROM for Windows '98/Windows '95 with a street price of around $29.95.
