Keeping teen drivers safe is important to Road America and West Bend
As a parent of a teen driver, I know how nerve racking it can be when your child gets a license and begins to drive without you in the car, too. While both teens and parents enjoy the newfound freedom, parents need to remain cautious and continue to teach. You can’t rely only on what they learned in driver’s education.
Parental involvement is one key way to help protect your teen driver(s). Consider setting rules, signing a parent/teen driving contract, and being a good example. If you drive while distracted, speed, or run red lights, your teen driver will probably do the same. You know the old saying, “The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.”
West Bend and Road America are partners in offering another way you can help protect your teen driver(s). Road America’s Teen Driving School is an advanced driving school that focuses on skills not taught in driver’s education.
Skid prevention and control – Teaches how to react and handle a car if you lose control.
ABS vs. threshold breaking – Teaches the difference between the two and how to effectively use ABS brakes. Never pump ABS brakes!
Collision avoidance maneuvers – Teaches how to make aggressive lane changes while keeping your car in control.
Proper vision skills – Teaches where to look, proper mirror use, and viewing traffic situations from a distance.
Road America’s experienced driving instructors accompany participants in cars provided by Road America. This program is offered several times during the year at Road America in Elkhart Lake, WI and runs from 9:00am to 4:00pm CST. To register your teen driver, click here.
The program’s retail price is $250; however, because of West Bend’s sponsorship, the price is $140 for the public and $80 for West Bend policyholders. If you’re a West Bend policyholder, you’ll need a promo code to receive the discounted price. Please contact Scott Stueber for the promo code at firstname.lastname@example.org.
