Automaker Offering Safe Driving Classes For Younger Drivers Across The Country
Toyota is doing more than just saying they support safe driving, they're taking the next step.
Toyota continues to offer its FREE advanced teen driving skills program, “Toyota Driving Expectations.” Since 2004, more than 14,000 teens and parents have been educated and empowered to become safer drivers, as well as learn firsthand about the dangers of distracted driving.
In today's technology driven society, distracted driving is becoming more of an issue. In an effort to prepare young drivers with crucial safety knowledge, Toyota Driving Expectations goes beyond what is taught in standard driver education classes, putting teens behind the wheel to face challenging, real-world scenarios in a secure environment.
The classes focus on these specific situations:
- Learn defensive driving skills and accident avoidance techniques
- Identify the dangerous driving situations that they encounter daily
- Understand vehicle dynamics and safety features
- Experience firsthand the dangers of distracted driving and understand the relationship between distraction and reaction time
“Toyota is dedicated to supporting both teens and parents in developing safe, responsible driving habits and protecting them on the road,” said Michael Rouse, Toyota’s vice president of philanthropy and community affairs.
Beginning with the October events, Toyota Driving Expectations will be presented in cooperation with long-time partner Bass Pro Shops. Given that, there are no current plans for a safe drivin class in the Buffalo area. Should that change, West Herr is the place to check for all things Toyota in Buffalo.
