The popular Bridgestone Teens Drive Smart Driving Experience returned to Nashville September 15-16 at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center. More than 300 teens participated in the annual event, which is organized by Bridgestone and designed to teach the next generation of drivers how to make smarter decisions behind the wheel.

Led by professional driving instructors, Teens Drive Smart is a half-day workshop that pairs classroom instruction with behind-the-wheel driving exercises. The activities are focused on eliminating distracted driving behaviors, improving practical driving skills and teaching teens how to perform routine vehicle and tire maintenance.
