Kia is looking to help teenagers become better drivers. Currently, motor vehicle crashes are the number one cause of death for 14-18 year olds in the United States. To help more teenagers learn safer driving habits, Kia continues to offer the Kia B.R.A.K.E.S. Program, a driving school that offers free advanced driver training for teenagers.
“Kia is dedicated to making roads safer and giving back to the communities we call home,” said Michael Sprague, executive vice president of sales and marketing for Kia Motors America. “We are determined to help reduce the number of distracted driving accidents by working with B.R.A.K.E.S. to provide teens with the tools they need to be safer, better trained drivers behind the wheel.”
This new program helps teenagers learn more defensive driving techniques, providing 300 students during the month of April with important driving instruction. So far, more than 15,000 teenagers have graduated from the intensive half-day training course. The Kia B.R.A.K.E.S. Program includes instruction on reducing distracted driving, using the anti-lock braking system, evasive maneuvering, and skid-control practice.
