California moms take note!
The Mercedes-Benz Driving Academy is gearing up to take on its “freshman class” of teen driver students at a training center located in Los Angeles.
Mercedes-Benz, a leader in automobile safety, is making a major commitment to driver education and safety in Southern California to combat the alarming statistics surrounding teen car crashes in the region. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the number one cause of death amongst adolescents ages 15-20 is a car crash. National averages show that teens are most likely to have a significant crash in their first year of driving, four-times higher than an adult or experienced driver. But not for long.
The new methodologies of the Mercedes-Benz Driving Academy are based on the findings of traffic safety organizations and institutions that confirm the most effective methods for both teaching and learning.
“We are leading a path to modify and update driver education to accommodate the incredible changes in the driving landscape that have transpired over the past six decades,” said Academy Director Carolyn Duchene.
Yeah, we think she means texting.
P.S. Where was this when we were growing up??
