May is Global Youth Traffic Safety Month

May 2, 2013

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 5,000 teens are killed in passenger vehicle crashes a year. Lack of driving experience, feelings of invincibility and distractions like teen passengers and cell phones, it is easy to understand how young drivers can be a threat to themselves and everyone else on the road. Global Youth Traffic Safety Month is a great opportunity to teach young drivers of situations that could be potentially dangerous.

Bridgeway Center, Inc. Driving Schools offers a variety of courses designed for young drivers including Drug Alcohol Traffic Education (DATE), A+ Driving Lessons, Safe New Attitude Program (SNAP), and a Distracted Driver course.

Giving New Drivers the “Tools” to Make Better Safe Driving Choices – Safe New Attitude Program (SNAP)

April 29, 2013

Experience may be the best teacher, but for new drivers gaining that experience comes with some risks. Young drivers are at a greater risk of having accidents on the road because they have less experience looking for signs of potential hazards that can lead to accidents. This driving course is designed to give novice drivers the tools they need to become more aware of the conditions around them and the kinds of responses that will help ensure their safety and that of other drivers.

Bridgeway Center Inc. Driving Schools is now offering the online version of the Safe New Attitude Program (SNAP) so that higher risk drivers can learn what it takes to reduce their risks behind the wheel. Like most defensive driving courses, the idea of personal accountability into driving is incorporated into the course to help individuals understand the potential outcomes of their actions. This course will help young drivers make better decisions, develop a positive attitude behind the wheel and become courteous drivers.

Safe New Attitude Program is presented by our partner, the National Traffic Safety Institute (NTSI).
