I would like to take this opportunity to say a HUGE “thank you” to the Tift County Sheriff’s Office for offering the PRIDE (Parents Reducing Incidents of Driver Error) program (it is FREE) in Tift County.

I have to say I would not have attended this program if it hadn’t been required, but I’m so glad that I attended. I have to say this program is GREAT! Much needed information was shared with the parents as well as the teens who were in attendance. The new laws and guidelines of teen driving were shared with us, which I can say I knew the laws had changed but not to the extent they are now. I feel that I will be able to give my teenager some much-needed guidance in learning to drive. As we learned, driving is NOT a right but a privilege.

I would have to say “Thank you and keep up the great work” to Sgt. James Partain and his assistants: Deputy Chris Strickland, Deputy James Lindsey, Deputy Joey Wood and Ashburn Police officers Scott Hawkins and Michelle Dove.

I would like to say to Tift County Commissioners, please provide our law enforcement with adequate equipment such as speakers for the presentations. This program is well worth the money that the county allots the sheriff’s office and then some. This program can save lives, our teenagers! As a taxpayer, I would like to see more of my tax dollars go towards this program.

I would like to say to our School Superintendent, Patrick Atwater and the Tift County Board of Education, please implement this program in our public schools for our beginner drivers. Our teenagers are worth every penny spent on this program.

I encourage all 14, 15 and/or 16-year-old teenagers to attend one of these sessions.



Respectfully yours,



Alice Saylor
