Accident Avoidance Workshops
Question: If there was a captivating program you could attend with your student, that would reduce the likelihood of them being involved in an accident by more than 75%, would you attend? And if so, how much would that be worth to you?
How does less than ½ of your insurance deductible sound?
Whether building confidence in new drivers, or knocking the hot-rods down a few pegs, the Accident Avoidance Workshops’ goal is to save lives by positively impacting new drivers’ development, in both their decision making abilities and the physical skills necessary to maximize on their own vehicle’s capabilities without losing control of their vehicle, or themselves.
The Workshops are coming to back to Kennesaw Mt. High School this December and spaces will go quick! Click here
