Dangers of distracted driving, how to correct a skid part of upcoming BRAKES course for teens – MLive.com

YPSILANTI, MI -- Teen drivers can try out their newly learned skills at a driving program in Ypsilanti in early May.

BRAKES, which stands for Be Responsible and Keep Everyone Safe, is hosting the free defensive driving course at the American Center For Mobility, 2701 Airport Drive. The event lasts from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, May 14, and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, May 15

Using cars provided by KIA, the program offers behind-the-wheel exercises like distracted driving awareness, panic braking, crash avoidance, off-road recovery and skid recovery, as well as instruction from law enforcement officers and professional racing drivers.

BRAKES is a national defensive driving program founded in 2008 by Doug Herbert, a former multiple NHRA champion, after both his sons died in a car crash. The nonprofit has trained more than 100,000 people, including 50,000 teenagers and 53,000 parents.

The program is open to those age15 to 20 with a valid permit or drivers license and at least 30 hours of driving experience. At least one parent must accompany the student, regardless of age.

While the program is free, participants must provide a $99 registration deposit, to be returned the day of the event. Each course lasts four hours, although times may vary due to COVID-19 safety precautions.

For more information about BRAKES or to register, visit the programs website.
