The rate of which driving accidents can occur incredibly high, and it's even higher for teen drivers that are just starting out on the roads. After losing his two teenage sons to a horrible accident, Doug Herbert has strived to out-do traditional driver's education with his program B.R.A.K.E.S. - Be Responsible and Keep Everyone Safe. Together with sponsorship from Kia, they have been able to create a school for teen drivers to experience unique situations, which they would never experience otherwise, in a safe, controlled setting with no risk for injury.
Take a look at the video highlighting the program, which was recently posted to Kia's YouTube channel:
Kia was proud to provide more than 44 cars to the program, which has instructed over 20,000 students - including both teens and parents alike. The ultimate goal is to retake the safety of the open roads by teaching proper habits in teenagers while correcting bad habits that have long been established in the minds of their parents or guardians. It's a great charitable cause that we here at Nemet Kia can't help but support.
