“Killing Cones While Making Safer Drivers”
The ALSCCA is proud to conduct several Teen Driver Clinics each year. These are one-day, hands-on, behind-the-wheel collision avoidance and defensive driving clinics that teach new teen drivers the skills needed to avoid vehicle incidents.
Using the students' own vehicle, the maneuvers practiced begin with simple elements and grow step-by-step to combine emergency braking and turning while staying in control of themselves and their vehicles.
Classroom sessions emphasize the theory behind the practice, but it is the practice on pavement that makes the clinics effective. Training in how to react as a driver follows the same principle as that used in training for sports - practice the right emergency responses so they can be used when the emergencies occur.
The Fall 2013 clinics will be held on October 5th, October 26th, and November 9th, all at the South Campus of Gardendale First Baptist Church.
We are proud to have Robert Russom of RealtySouth (www.RobertRussom.com), Graham Hutson of The Hutson Company (www.TheHutsonCompany.com), and Jim Garner of The Insurance Store (www.TheInStore.net) partner with us for the Fall 2013 clinics. Their generous contributions have allowed us to secure new traffic cones for use in our exercises and produce t-shirts for the students and workers.
Reguirements include: driver's license or learner's permit, valid insurance card/certificate, parent or guardian on-site, and the vehicle you will be driving regularly.
