Bridgestone launches “Think Before You Drive” web site

Posted by lapearce on February 17, 2009

This week at the Chicago Auto Show, Bridgestone unveiled their new drivers education program, aimed to education all drivers, but particularly those new to the road. “We know that car accidents are the leading cause of death among drivers aged 16 to 20,” says Christine Karbowiak, vice president of community and corporate relations at Bridgestone.

“We are fully committed to doing what we can to educate motorists — particularly new teenage drivers — on the importance of safe driving every time they get behind the wheel,” she notes. “We’re excited about the Think Before You Drive program and are eager to share it with all drivers.”

The Web site, Think Before You Drive, is an interactive site, with games and quizes to test your knowledge on car safety. The Web site also includes car care information, contracts for teen drivers, and lists of driving programs near you. Hopefully, Driving Concepts Foundation will soon be on that list, as a non-profit new driver educator in the Southern California area.

I have always admired Bridgestone as a company, and this just increases my respect for them even more. Kudos to Bridgestone!
