NATIONAL SAFETY COUNCIL     ALIVE AT 25

TRAFFIC CRASHES ARE THE #1 KILLER OF TEENS

Every year, young drivers are involved in more than six million collisions, resulting in 14,000 fatalities.

Although young divers only represent 13% of all licensed drivers nationally, they cause 28% of all traffic crashes and 24% of all fatal crashes. By understanding the risks and hazards a teen driver faces while behind-the-wheel, teens and their parents can work together to keep them safe. Group rates available. We will come to your classroom/lecture room. This is one of the best limited time opportunities, email Jack Varnado or call (985) 643-7803

Our 20th Anniversary !  We continue to be sought after by new schools because of our expert experience in the field of road safety. Our list of accomplishments continue to grow as we continue to offer the curriculum in the area.     

The results of these classes, courses or behind-the-wheel training or assessments should be viewed as an indication of the driver’s functional driving ability at the time of the evaluation/assessment, and NOT as a comprehensive measure of driving potential or predictor of future performance.   

 

We reserve the right to refuse to conduct business with those individuals or companies who we view to be misrepresenting themselves.
