State Courts Against Road Rage (SCARR) Program

About the SCARR Program: 

The State Courts Against Road Rage (SCARR) course was developed to educate younger drivers charged with serious motor vehicle violations.  SCARR is intended to:

  • Make students face the driving behaviors that got them into the class and discuss how they will change that behavior
  • Make them understand the possible serious consequences involved with irresponsible and dangerous driving
  • Educate them on how to handle and prevent dangerous driving scenarios

Reasons for Completing SCARR: 

A Massachusetts JOL License or Permit holder that commits certain categories of motor vehicle violations is required under law to complete the SCARR program.  Drivers may also be mandated to complete SCARR as assigned by a specific court.

    Our Goal is to Help Students...

    • Improve driving behavior by becoming a more educated, responsible, and defensive driver.
    • Identify and explain behaviors that led to your most recent ticket.
    • Identify reasons for making poor (high risk) driving choices.
    • Identify personal, legal, and cost consequences of your driving behavior.
    • List advantages of having a driver’s license.
    • Recognize that a lack of knowledge is NOT the cause of your problems.
    • Define and create a profile of you as a defensive driver.

    After completing SCARR, students will have a better understanding of the repercussions of irresponsible driving behaviors and will know how to better handle peer pressure.  They will come away with information they can put into practice immediately to protect themselves and others on the road.
