Collision Avoidance Training
Collision Avoidance Training is a defensive driving and vehicle control program for teens developed by the National Traffic Safety Academy. During the two-day course, adapted from law enforcement training, teens learn how to handle their vehicles in any situation. Designed especially for new drivers who want more specialized experience on the road, Collision Avoidance Training teaches hands-on techniques for evasive maneuvers, emergency braking, cornering, backing, skid recovery, steering, acceleration and more. Participants must be ages 16-19, possess a valid Maryland driver’s license and bring a vehicle to drive during the practical exercises. Police anticipate offering the course several times a year, determined by community interest. For more information, call 410-313-3758.
Instruction is held in the classroom Friday from 6 to 9 p.m. On-the-road practicals are held Saturday from 7:45 a.m. to 2 p.m. Attendance on both Friday and Saturday is required. Classes are held at the James N. Robey Public Safety Training Center in Marriottsville. The cost for the training is $95, thanks to generous program support from the Howard County Police Foundation. Additional program support is provided by Browning Reagle Insurance Agency.
Child safety seats
The safety and security of our children is paramount when riding in a vehicle. The Maryland Kids in Safety Seats program provides information on properly installing and using a child safety seat. You may also attend a program to have your child safety seat checked for proper installation. For more information, call 410-313-6090.
