Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for United States teenagers, accounting for more than one in three deaths. Young people are at a greater risk for traffic accidents due to one major reason—lack of experience.
Gundersen’s Division of Trauma is committed to keeping teens safe by offering a Teen Car Control Clinic. The clinic will not only teach the fundamentals of vehicle control during the classroom session, but it will also offer invaluable behind-the-wheel exercises. During the in-car portion of the clinic, instructors will familiarize students with proper breaking concepts, vehicle weight transfer and cornering, and unexpected lane changes. The session is designed to heighten students’ awareness and responsiveness to real-world situations and boost confidence in their own skills.
We require that a parent/guardian attend the course with the licensed teen (16 to 19 years old).
