Mercedes-Benz of Sugar Land, MSR Houston Holds Special Driving Safety Lesson for Area Teens

Mercedes-Benz of Sugar Land, in conjunction with MSR Houston, recently hosted a special safe driving lesson for area teens.

The aim of the Teen Driving Safety School is to prepare young drivers for their daily journeys. This is an annual back-to-school event for licensed teenagers aged 16-20.

Fourteen students participated in the free driving lesson, which took place at MSR Houston’s on-road course.

These included skid pads, braking, reversing and other drills – the purpose of these “hands-on” driving experiences was to prepare students for challenging situations and demonstrate skills. crucial safety and accident avoidance techniques.

“With more students back on the roads heading back to school, it’s so important to provide them with the tools they need to be safe drivers and teach them how to safely control a car in real-life situations. “Brown said.
