by Puton The Brakes Puton The Brakes

:                The national free teen defensive driving program B.R.A.K.E.S. (Be Responsible and Keep Everyone Safe) will head to the San Diego area on the weekend of February 1 and 2, visiting California State University, San Marcos.  Sessions will be held from 8 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. both days.



 

Utilizing vehicles provided by Kia Motors, the B.R.A.K.E.S. program offers teens extensive behind-the-wheel instruction from professional trainers including current and former law enforcement officers as well as professional racing drivers, teaching the 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.

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 Herbert in 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.
