Three donated go-karts — they are being used to teach children to drive and obey traffic signals and stop signs.
the sergeant says they will set up a go-kart driving course at community events.

Sgt. Mike Nelson / Huntsville Police: “The kids are learning what’s going on, so when they actually get to a driving age they have a better understanding of what the road laws are in Alabama.”
“We want the kids of the community to build a trust with the officers and to be able to trust police officers and be able to look at us in a good light. We are out there to help the community. We are out there to help people. We are actually out there to teach as well.”
