Lakeville, CT, United States, 2016/07/13 - For parents, this might be one of the most important and memorable experiences they ever share with their child. Learning defensive driving techniques, that may one day save their lives.
"Driving is your most dangerous and everyday activity," says Bob Green, Director of Survive the Drive in Lakeville, Connecticut. Survive the Drive is offering their ‘Behind the Wheel’ driver safety clinic on July 25th on the paved infield areas of Lime Rock Park. Previous programs have benefited drivers from 16 to 78 years old. "Every driver can benefit. We’d like to eliminate the mistakes that cause crashes." says Green.
The program offers thoughtful strategies coupled with performing crash avoidance maneuvers that, in an ‘all of a sudden’ moment, can mean the difference between health and well being or violent consequence.
This program is based on science and behavior to inform and enable drivers in their understanding and decisions. We supplement a drivers’ test with additional training to be adequate for driving for most of the student’s lifetime.
Students Will Be Learning Crash Avoidance Maneuvers, Skid Recovery And Emergency Lane Changes From Professional Driving Coaches.
CT State Police Traffic Services Unit will be demonstrating the Seatbelt Convincer and Rollover Demonstrator.
