A full docket for Court Week

Thursday, November 1, 2018 by Elizabeth Pagano

Next week is Austin Municipal Court Week, apparently. And, to celebrate, the courts are hosting a variety of events, starting with court tours and a judge Q&A session on Nov. 5, at 9:30 a.m., 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. Nov. 6 will feature a driving simulator from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. and bicycle safety from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. On Nov 7, Austinites 15 years and older will be able to try driving with “Fatal Vision Goggles” that simulate impaired driving. Nov. 8 events are all for those 15 and older, with a driving simulator from 2 to 8 p.m., something called “impact teen driver” from 5 to 9 p.m. and a class called “What do you consider lethal?” at 6 p.m. (Registration for that class is required.) Finally, on Friday, the court will host a safety seat demonstration from 10 a.m. until noon and “Captain America’s Mock Trial” which will take place at noon, and is for elementary-aged children. Registration for the trial is also required. More information about the whole to-do is available on the city’s website.
