Free National Teen Defensive Driving School Heads to Phoenix Area on March 14-15

Mar 9th 2020 at 3:42 AM

The national free teen defensive driving program B.R.A.K.E.S. (Be Responsible and Keep Everyone Safe) will return to the Phoenix area, visiting Chandler-Gilbert Community Collegeon Saturday and Sunday, March 14 and 15.

 

 

Utilizing vehicles provided by Kia Motors, the B.R.A.K.E.S. program offers teens extensive behind-the-wheel instruction fromprofessional trainers including current and former law enforcement officers as well as professional racing drivers, teachingthe teens and their parents how to be safer on the road.  Exercises include Distracted Driving Awareness, Panic Braking, Crash Avoidance, Drop-wheel/Off-road Recovery and Car Control/Skid Recovery.

Space is limited and seats are filling quickly. Online registration is available at Putonthebrakes.

The fact: Car crashes are the number-one cause of death among teens, ending more lives every day than murder, suicide or disease. The result: B.R.A.K.E.S. graduates are 64 percent less likely to get in a crash within their first three years of driving.

The 501(c)(3) charity was founded by multi-time Top Fuel drag racing champion Doug Herbertin honor of his two sons, Jon and James, who lost their lives in a tragic car crash in 2008. Herbert turned that personal tragedy into a lifesaving mission that has trained more than 40,000 teens across the country.
