Car

Why?

Individual mobility is being restricted, traffic density increases and security on the road has becomes a major concern.

Emergency and extreme situations are fortunately not frequent in everyday driving, but this leads one to a false sense of security, thus we are poorly prepared for critical situations.95% of all car accidents are due to human error.

Cars are developping all the time, Automatic Braking Systems, Anti-Slip prevention, 4-wheel drive, Elektronic Stability Systems (ESP) and cruise controls; nevertheless an anticipatory safe behaviour and a correct reaction are essential in an emergency situation.

  • Our aim is educate our participants to take a more aware and defensive attitude to driving through simulations of dangerous and emergency situations using special road constructions and the latest equipment. The highest security standards combined with well trained and experienced instructors, help our participants to adopt a more defensive driving style. They become more aware of the dangers of everyday traffic and get to know their limits and those of their cars. They are then more likely to react in an appropriate way in emergency situations.
