Driving In A New America, Inc


T.S.D.I. is a joint project by Butler County District Judge Wayne Seibel and Driving In A New America. It is a one-day class designed to give a judge an alternative to current sentencing guidelines, which would require a guilty verdict to be followed by assessing of a fine and points.

If the defendant agrees to attend the program, the judge may use his/her discretion to eliminate the fine and/or points associated with a moving violation.

Participation in the program is at the sole discretion of the judge. It will only be available to teen-age drivers, and only at their "first offense". The class will be conducted on Saturdays, will last six hours (9:30 AM to 3:30 PM) and lunch will be served.

Participants will be addressed by a police officer, an insurance agent, an attorney, and a professional driving instructor. Emphasis will be given to the legal and economical consequences of unsafe driving practices, and particular focus will be placed on safety issues.

The cost for the course is $40, and anyone is welcome to attend, even if they have not had a moving violation.
