Teens learn about defensive driving

Posted at 1:24 PM, Mar 20, 2016

2016 has already been a deadly year on the roadways but teens and parents are hoping to reverse that rend with a lesson in defensive driving.

Thanks to a grant from the Nevada Department of Public Safety, Driver's Edge kicked off their 2016 season at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway Saturday.

The program teaches skid control, evasive lane change maneuvers, anti-lock braking skills and panic braking techniques.

Nevada Highway Patrol and professional racecar drivers were also on hand for the event.
