Driving is a necessity for most Canadians. Most use their cars as a transportation tool, some for pleasure and others, as part of their work. Government committees have been established to reduce the number of fatalities and serious injuries caused by collisions on our roads. At last census, the recent year over year reductions have been significant, mostly due to better vehicles (stability control systems, crash-worthy) and increased seat-belt compliance. Drivers have been left to improve their statistic on the road by a series of restrictions and penalties with the hope of making them better.
In my 35 years of high performance driving and coaching, I have never seen a naturally competent driver. However, I have seen thousands of drivers benefit from a day of driving information and practise, advanced driver training. After this initial driver training day, newly developed skills can be practised each time in the car. All leading to the goal of becoming a competent and safe driver. I wish this for your family, friends, and work associates.
Many of you have purchased winter tires for yourself, your family, and/or your company vehicles. Simply, winter tires maximize every drivers’ chances for safe passage on our Canadian winter roads. However, few drivers are able to use these tires to their best advantage (emergency braking, collision avoidance, skid control) if something unexpected occurs on their travels. To this end, the Bridgestone Canadian Winter Driver Training Program is pleased to announce that the first consumer day will be Saturday December 17th at Mosport’s DDT.
