MBCA Educational Foundation – Safe Families Safe Driving Program

The MBCA Educational Foundation has launched the Safe Drivers, Safe Families program. The overall objective of the program is to provide teens with a basic set of fundamental skills and attitudes on which they can develop all the knowledge, experience, and techniques of a competent safe driver.

We recognize that there is only a limited amount of skill or knowledge that can be taught or absorbed in one day, even combined with some study of written materials. Consequently we are focusing on presenting a limited number of basic skills and providing the students with the opportunity to experience them while driving their own automobiles in a closed-course supervised situation.

The skills to be taught in the driving clinic are:

  • How to make sure the vehicle is mechanically sound and safe to drive.
  • How to set the seats and mirrors and position the head and hands of the driver for maximum control of the vehicle.
  • How to accelerate, steer, and stop the vehicle in extreme situations.
  • How to steer with the eyes and continuously scan and evaluate the driving environment in order to drive smoothly and safely.
  • How to develop a set of attitudes that will enable the driver to anticipate circumstances that will require response and determine the proper response for the circumstances.
