Defensive Driving

"Death by driving" is the third highest preventable cause of death. For teenagers, cars are still the leading cause of death. More than 34,600 people lose their lives in motor vehicle crashes annually, and over two million more suffered disabling injuries. According to the National Safety Council, the triple threat of high speeds, impaired or careless driving and not using occupant restraints threatens every driver, regardless of how careful or how skilled. In addition, you can save money on your auto insurance (or, parents can save money on their teenager's insurance!) by successfully completing this National Safety Council Defensive Driving course. Georgia Senate Bill 433 requires insurance companies in Georgia to give families with good driving experience a 10% discount on portions of their auto insurance upon completion of this course. Eligibility for the discount will continue for three years, provided that no driver commits a moving traffic offense or has a claim against the policy based on an at-fault accident. Consult with your insurance agent to determine exactly how completion of this program will affect your insurance rates. Please bring paper and pencils to class. This course is not for points reduction. There will be a lunch break so bring your own or visit one of the eateries on campus.
