COLUMBUS—Senate President Larry Obhof
(R-Medina) today congratulated Medina County on the completion of a new driving skills complex for the county’s Take Control Teen Driving Program, as well as police driver’s training.
The two-acre driving pad was funded by a collaboration of public and private entities, including funding in the state of Ohio’s last capital budget, which Obhof co-sponsored.
“As our youth learn to drive, their education and skills development are important not only for their own safety but also for our community’s safety as a whole,” said Obhof. “Medina County’s driving skills complex offers our citizens a really unique service, and I’m grateful to all those that made this location and program possible.”
Launched in 2013, Take Control is a unique program available in Medina County taught by local law enforcement to help teen drivers gain experience and confidence in difficult driving situations. The program is open to any teen driver and is offered free-of-charge. For more information, visit TakeControlDriving.org
