We appreciate your concern for Georgia's' young drivers, and hope you will join us in our efforts to continue the development and expansion of this important Driver Training Resource. LEADER (Lanier Extended Area Drivers Education Resource) is dedicated to facilitating high quality, experienced based driver training to both young drivers and to the law enforcement and emergency services communities.
L.E.A.D.E.R. is an organization founded by volunteers in August 2000. The purpose of our intervention was to reduce the incidence of children being killed on our roads directly related to inadequate driver training. On today’s roads, we lose more children 14 to 24 years of age to automobile accidents than any other cause. This is a major health issue for our young people.
The L.E.A.D.E.R. driving program is located in Cumming, Georgia. The program was initiated by Dr. Michael Hogan, an orthopedic surgeon and developed with a dedicated group of community leaders with guidance and oversight provided by a Board of Directors consisting of a cross section of recognized leaders from both government and industry.
