Drivers Edge

This past weekend we took the kids to a program called Drivers Edge. It is sponsored by Bridgestone and some guy out of Las Vegas started it up. GREAT program! My niece and one of our friends sons felt like they were signed up for something they didn't want to do. I was told later that my niece talked about that whole night and even wore her free shirt the next day she loved it so much! Anywho, the kids take a little pretest

They drove an obstacle course slamming on their brakes to test the ABS

Exceeded tasks that they never thought they would

That they looked cool getting out of a BMW..Hello, it ain't your car...driving it doesn't make you that cool!

Learned how to come out of a spin and not flip them and their friends over...

All in all, it was a great day. 4 hours flew by and hopefully we took home 5 kids that were better drivers than they were when they arrived!

Hey Lesa, I wanted the boys to do that in Vegas, your are right it is an AWESOME program, also giving you a discount on your insurance, however, they didn't do it, but who is to say I can't do it? Love the pics, love the BMW! I don't know, even just sitting in a BMW with the motor off makes you look cool! Have an awesome day, how is your eyebrows?

How come they didn't have that when we were that age??? I got to drive an old ford station wagon up and down the dirt roads to learn how to drive by my self! How safe was that!
Use to take my sister with me (she had to go every where I went) she was 8,. What were my parents thinking??? Still I think we all should have been able to attend some kind of function and been able to drive what would have been the car of the day at that time and been COOL!
