Local students are learning some real life lessons from the accident in Brighton as they get behind the wheel.
Cassidy Longo loves to drive.
It's a sense of freedom.
"It's nice not to have step dad drive me around," said Cassidy Longo.
Longo saw how this week's serious crash in Brighton affected 4 high schoolers.
"It's very scary, something you don't think about until something like that"
So did 16-year old Sarah Marvin.
"Don't think about it everyday but could happen to me or somebody you know," said Sarah Marvin.
But it's real life lessons these BOCES drivers' education instructors teach everyday from Fairport to Brighton.
"If you run into a bus you probably weren't paying full attention at that moment," said Mike Demay, Director of Fairport/Brighton Driver's Education.
They are teaching the basics of what to do like when to put your signal on and how to switch lanes.
And also what not to do: text and drive, talk to passengers, use a cell phone.
Students say they are listening to the warnings and messages.
These students said people should be smart with their decisions.
The lessons learned here will hopeful travel with them down the road.
