140 BUZZ is proud to welcome Doug Herbert's B.R.A.K.E.S. program to their growing clientele.
With over 10,000 teenagers already having completed the acclaimed Teen Pro-Active Driving Schools offered by B.R.A.K.E.S. since this life-saving program was created in 2008, 2014 is quickly shaping up as one of the busiest on record for the non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.
Dedicated to providing young motorists and their parents, free of charge, an intensive driver training program focused on increasing concentration, confidence, and control behind the wheel, B.R.A.K.E.S. (Be Responsible And Keep Everyone Safe)
The program prides itself on a low student to instructor ratio of 3:1. All instructors are professionally trained and have years of experience. To increase education, all students have a parent who also goes through the training program to reinforce what their children learn.
"These schools are challenging, demanding, but at the same time enjoyable and eye-opening," says Doug Herbert, the championship-winning Top Fuel drag racer and B.R.A.K.E.S. founder who lost his two young sons, Jon and James, in a 2008 highway accident, leading to the creation of this nationally-known program.
"The thing we see repeatedly at just about all of our schools is the change in attitude the kids go through from the time they arrive to when they complete the course. At first they question why they need this training since they already have their driver's license, and when the course is over, they're amazed at how much they've learned."
"Doug is an amazing person," said 140 BUZZ owner Mike Calinoff. "He endured a tragedy and extracted something that will undoubtedly save thousands of lives. Every parent across the country should utilize the B.R.A.K.E.S. program."
