Car Control Clinic To Be Held In May

  • By

Young Drivers taught Behind the Wheel Defensive Driving Techniques The St. Marys County Highway Safety Program, along with the St.Marys County Public Schools and Great Mills High School, is sponsoring the Countys 3rd teen defensive driving clinic. The next New Driver Car Control Clinic will be held during the weekend of May 18 at Great Mills High School. This popular behind-the-wheel Clinic focuses on teaching parents and teens critical accident-avoidance maneuvers and defensive-driving skills such as eye management - judging spatial relationships steering management - making the car go precisely where you want it to, even in an emergency and brake management - the so-called panic stop without the panic. The exercises are performed in a series of cone patterns in the family's own car on both wet and dry pavement.

Class sizes are limited to 40 teens and their parents, (10 for each of the four driving sessions) and is open to everyone. The Friday night, classroom session will be held in the high school auditorium between 7:00 - 9:00 p.m. Upon registering attendees may choose from one of the four available behind-the-wheel driving sessions that occur on either Saturday or Sunday. The cost of the class is only $159.00. Attendees should have at least a learners permit, and be comfortable making basic driving maneuvers. Parents must attend with their teen.
