Toronto – February 14, 2013 – Today the MBCA, Toronto-Section Announces – Safer Driving Offered Through Mercedes-Benz Club of America! It only takes a split second for an accident to happen. You and your family will know alternatives in an emergency situation to help avoid accidents, by taking the defensive driving course offered by the Mercedes Benz Club of America Toronto Section this Spring. It is knowing what your car can do and knowing what you can do with your car, which makes the difference! You can’t stop as fast as you can avoid, and the best accident is the accident you avoid. Buy another second or two in an emergency. It may save your life!
Two courses are being offered. The Defensive Driving Course for the more seasoned driver that want to update his driving skills and the Safe Drivers – Safe Families course where we will be teaching basic driving skills and car knowledge to our young student drivers.
Bring the car you, your wife and your licensed teenagers drive everyday (it does not have to be a Mercedes). The two courses will offered both on May 5 and 6, 2013 at the Powerade Centre in Mississauga.
Each course is run in two parts. Beginning with a short morning class covering necessary basics from seat adjustment to car dynamics, it progresses to individual “hands on” sessions with an instructor to practice low speed maneuvers in controlled circumstances to practice avoiding an obstacle in the road, proper hard braking technique and steering through slalom to feel your car’s dynamics.
This exciting day is rounded off with an Autocross Lite course to drive in the afternoon. Besides having more fun, you and your family members review the skills you learned in the morning session, by driving through this course with or without instructor. Certificates and awards will be given to make the day more memorable! A feedback session will help let students and instructors share their experiences.
