B.R.A.K.E.S. Offered To Teen & Their Parents
Be Responsible and Keep Everyone Safe or B.R.A.K.E.S. is a free defensive driving school for teens and parents on August 28th & 29th. The Missouri State Highway Patrol (MSHP) and Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) are teaming up to bring Doug Herbert’s B.R.A.K.E.S. Teen Pro-Active Driving School to the Missouri Emergency Vehicle Operation Course (EVOC) training center in Jefferson City. Sargent Jake Angle from The Highway Patrol says this program will provide very valuable experience in a controlled environment.
B.R.A.K.E.S. is a GuideStar Platinum-rated 501(c)(3) charity that offers free, hands-on defensive driver training to teens and their parents nationwide. Doug Herbert, Multi-time Top Fuel drag racing champion, founded the road safety organization in honor of his two teenage sons, Jon and James, who lost their lives in a car crash in 2008. The class is free but requires a $99 refundable deposit to hold your seat. For more information, or to register for this event, please visit https://putonthebrakes.org/shop/Merchandise?item=276.
