Palmyra Automotive Hosts Car Maintenance Event for Teens
Donations collected at the event went to Students Against Destructive Decisions.
Fluvanna County teens are driving a little safer tonight after a quick course in car maintenance.
Palmyra Automotive hosted the workshop Saturday.
The teens learned how to refill a car's fluids, change a tire, and what to keep in the glove box in case of emergency.
Taylor Walters, a sophomore at Christopher Newport University, and her sister Leslie, a new driver, organized the event to keep teens safe on the roads.
"It was something I thought that community members could get something out of and girls my age - a lot of the times - don't know what to do with their cars, so something like this can help them be a little bit more independent whether it's just driving to the high school like Leslie will be, or driving all the way down to Newport News like I will be," Walters said.
Walters collected donations at the event for Students Against Destructive Decisions - which works to prevent teens from texting, drinking and being distracted while driving.
