Austin has been selected as recruitment location for a teen driver study conducted by the University of Minnesota.
The project will study teen driver safety and behaviors as well as parental involvement with teens during the learning phase of driving.
The university seeks to recruit 10 teen drivers from Austin who currently have their learner’s permit, will receive their provisional driver’s license between April 1 and May 15, 2013, are age 16 at that time, and are able to begin the study within one month of their licensure start date.
As part of the study, teens will receive a free Samsung Galaxy S3 smartphone and monthly data, text and talk service plan for one year. Additionally, teens will receive a monthly $25 incentive at the end of the year-long study totaling $300. For more information, contact Nichole Morris at email@example.com or call 612-624-4614.
