Many of us have taken classes, maybe in high school or college, where the information learned didn’t seem like it would be useful in any aspect of life. Classes here at BSR could not be more different. We pride ourselves in knowing that no matter the skill level, everybody leaves our facility with valuable, life-saving skills that are still useful long after class ends.
Recently, we had a previous student of our defensive driving (Accident Avoidance) course reach out, thanking us for the skills they acquired at BSR over 12 years ago! As you’ll see in the excerpt below, the skills this individual learned enabled them to save their own life as well as the lives of family members traveling with them.
“I took your defensive driving course over 12 years ago and I just wanted to send you all a message of thanks for all that you do. This past weekend I had 2 separate incidents which required me to tap into the skills that were taught during your course in order to keep me and my family safe.
I had a car hit my driver’s side rear quarter panel (right behind my tire) while we were both driving over 60mph. I was able to quickly regain control of my vehicle and nobody was injured, despite his speedy getaway after he realized that he had hit me.
Two days later, I had a full-sized ladder fall off of a car in front of me while driving at speed on a major highway. Again, thanks to your “swerve to avoid” techniques, I was able to maintain control of my car and get around the flying object in front of me.
Both my father and older brother used to be driving instructors at Summit Point and they got me into your defensive driving class so that I could learn how to be a safer driver. Although I have used those techniques many times in the 12+ years since my class, I was reminded of just how much I learned from your instructors oh so long ago and I wanted to thank you for all that you do.”
We’re very glad that this family is safe, and love hearing how previous students are using the skills they learned here at BSR. Find out how you can learn how to be a safer driver for LIFE at BSR.
