Northern Virginia Corvette Club Teaches Teens How To Avoid Accidents

April 30, 2012 by The Parrish Law Firm

Manassas, VA – April 30 – The Northern Virginia Corvette Club’s Teen Driving School hosted a free course on Saturday, April 21, aimed at teaching teens the correct measures to take in dangerous situations.

According to official reports by The Washington Post, the class was held at 8 a.m. at the Old Dominion Speedway and included a classroom session, skid and slalom courses, car care and an anti-lock braking exercise.

About 30 teens and their parents took part in the course. They learned how to counteract a skid on slippery roads, check vehicle fluids and tire treads, change a flat tire and properly adjust the car’s mirrors.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that car accidents are the leading cause of death for teens in the United States. Police said the eight-year-old course is held twice a year, right before winter and prom season, because these are some of the deadliest times for teen drivers.

Steward Fox, co-chairman of the Teen Driving School, said the class is one of the community service events held by Corvette Club.

The organization’s goal is to allow teens to experience real-life situations in a safe, controlled environment so that they can avoid car accidents when driving on their own.

Being involved in a car accident can be a stressful ordeal that causes both financial and emotional suffering. If you or your child has been a victim of an accident, you need a trained legal professional to fight on your side in court.
