Driver's Edge is a great organization with a very important mission. To save the lives of young drivers! The aim of Driver's Edge is to bring European driver education (which is more stringent and advanced) to US teenagers. The biggest killer of teenagers is not guns, drugs, or alcohol….. but car accidents. Bringing better driving education to this age group, Driver's Edge is trying to get those car accident deaths of young drivers down.
When you go out for the day to one of the Driver's Edge programs, it's a lot of fun. They will run a you through several different emergency maneuvering techniques. (In a BMW!) You'll get to experience what is like to take a car to it's limit in a controlled situation. You also get some Free goodies. I got a T-Shirt and emergency roadside kit, that I still have in my car.
I had a great time doing it and I highly recommend any teenagers sign-up or parents with teenagers sign-up and go. Best part about Driver's Edge? It's completely Free!
