Stopping for school buses is the law and for the safety of children, watch this video to see how many people do not stop. http://ow.ly/Y8fdj

No use of hand-held or hands-free devices for fleets. It should be that way for everyone. Keep your hands on the wheel, your eyes on the road and your mind on driving. Get to your destination safely! http://ow.ly/XXcrQ
Last October, NAFA Fleet Management Association took a stance on the issue of distracted driving. They adopted a no-tolerance policy towards distracted driving by recommending that their members prohibit the use of electronic devices for drivers, both handheld and hands-free. We spoke with Phil Russo, the CEO of NAFA Fleet Management Association to discuss the new policy, the reasoning behind the policy, and his thoughts on the distracted driving...

Time is running out, the Phoenix Open begins this week. Would you be willing to pledge a penny or more per birdie during the 2016 Waste Management Phoenix Open Golf Tournament to support Red Means Stop Coalition (Traffic Safety Alliance). They count the number of birdies and it would be approximately $13-18 for the one-cent pledge. The Thunderbird Charities adds 10% on top of what we collect and they will bill you after the tournament is over (mid February). It is one of our biggest fund raisers. A name will be drawn from the list of donors to win 2 tickets to the Phoenix Open! Click the link and make a pledge today.

A new bill may be introduced to lower the age to receive a permit to age 15. What are your thoughts? http://ow.ly/XCnsv
A bill that would allow younger teens to get behind the wheel is making its way to the Arizona Legislature, but some advocacy groups are calling that move unsafe.

There are 3 types of distractions - visual (taking your eyes off of the road), manual (taking your hands off of the steering wheel), cognitive (taking your mind off of driving). Using a cell phone engages all 3 of these and even using your phone while stopped at a light or stop sign is dangerous. http://ow.ly/XPoIf
Results of a recent study reveal that our smart phones are so mentally engaging that even after we put them down our brains are still focused on them. It takes valuable time, almost 27 seconds, for our brians to re-focus on driving after we begin to move [....]

Saw this post on Facebook this morning. This is true about anything, if you don't practice, you don't get better or good at anything, that includes driving!

I had high hopes for this program, but in the end it was disappointing. I think most of the driving instructors are excellent and their mission of turning out safe drivers is terrific, but the execution was mediocre at best. We were told at the parent class that they would not just pass a student through the program, but whenever we asked about our daughter repeating a simulation lab or on-road session that she had not "passed," we were always told that she should just keep going. I would have been happy to pay for her to repeat the things she did not do well in, but I could not persuade schedulers/receptionists to let her do this. In the end, she was given a certificate of completion, but she did not feel confident about her driving ability and frankly neither did we. I tried emailing and calling to set up additional lessons and was willing to pay for those, but after many days of no response and then playing phone tag, we decided to look around and see if we could find someone who really wanted our business. Today we signed our daughter up for a program at NControl Driving School and will review that program after we have completed it. If you decide to go with DrivingMBA, I would recommend doing the Busy Parents program so you get more professional on-road instruction and making sure that you ask to ride along for those sessions, so you know how to instruct your child. You are expected to do 20 hours of driving with your child between each on-road training/evaluation session.

Parents don't need to do the Busy Parent program to achieve results. They do, however, have to work with us and follow our recommendations if they want their student to continue to move forward. If students only get the training with little to no practice in between lessons, they will not develop the necessary skills to be a safe and responsible driver and this is made abundantly clear in our parent class. It is no different than anything else, if you don't put in the practice, you won't get better. As far as repeating simulation lessons, there is a point where there is diminished return and we need to move to the next phase. There are some students who struggle and we assess every step of the way. We do not want parents to continue to spend money when their student very well may have plateaued. In rare cases it is best to wait and pick it up later. In this case, in our professional opinion, the student continued to struggle and yes she did receive a certificate that stated she completed the package that was purchased, because she did complete the training. We were, however, in the process of trying to set up a meeting with this family to determine next steps given the students lack of progress. Yes, there was some phone tag happening, as Kathleen Ryan, who is the director of Instruction and Curriculum, who handles these cases is very busy. We do however, follow-up with e-mails and do our best to get in contact with parents on a timely basis.

Both my teen have completed the Driving MBA program. It was worth the time, money and effort involved on our part. The program is well-designed to teach the teen not just how to drive but also how to be a responsible, defensive driver. I highly recommend this driving school to all my friends with teens.

This is our second child going through this thorough program. The simulators and defensive driving experiences offer real life situations which are invaluable to new drivers. The instructors are professional and offer constructive corrections that are effective for young teens. Driving MBA makes consistent reminder calls and reaches out if classes open up sooner. In addition, before the student can schedule a new drive they must accomplish 20 hours of driving for a total of 60 hours of driving. Double what the MVA requires.

I sent my son here after trying to teach my first three children on our own. I thought it was a thorough program. Alittle expensive however, for the same program we used to get for free in the schools. If it were a bit cheaper more people might be able to take advantage of it. I think the program itself was great and the staff was professional throughout.

This program just made me feel weak! I felt like I just couldn't drive for all the negatives things that i heard from them. I lost a lot of my confident, but its okay.I will work on it. Well, thank you very much. I made a mistakes. Good luck.
Response from the owner - 2 weeks ago
It is our job to give honest and straightforward feedback to students and parents. It is never our intention to have a student lose confidence, but if a student does not take the recommendations of our instructors and practice what they are learning they will not develop the necessary skills to become a safe and responsible driver.

It was extremely helpful. Especially the simulators, since I had never driven before, it was a very good way to start, instead of having to go straight to driving with an actual car. I advise everybody to do the same. You really learn to be a safe driver, even though it is a bit time consuming, it's definitely worth it.

I found this to be an exceptional experience for my teen. It is truly a shame a course such as this is not REQUIRED in order to obtain a license in AZ. The knowledge my teen received is something I could not relay to them. After driving for 23 years we become very complacent. TOO comfortable believing we can handle anything when we are behind the wheel. Things become very robotic inside the car when you have been a driver so long. I wanted my teen to learn to drive from a source that could give them the knowledge I myself have long since ignored. Be honest with yourselves. Is there such a thing as a rolling stop? Yellow doesn't mean speed up! Who said we could drive 10 miles over the speed limit? The cost of this program is so minimal compared to the tragedies that occur on our roadways everyday. Their safety is more important to me. My teen is a safe driver, I feel comfortable with them driving. Even though the course has ended the learning will never stop! I will continue to work with them, and make sure the knowledge they have learned sticks. I have learned alot on this year long journey with my new driver. I wish more people could find a way to give this opportunity to their new drivers. So much more information then I could ever give, and a walk up call to myself as well. I can't thank MBA enough for their dedication in teaching our youth! Much appreciation
