Winter Driving Info/ Advanced Driver Training


I phoned one number, and they gave me another number and then another and then I left a message, but Andy got back to me right away. So, here it is:

in Edmonton the training is provided by CTEC (Canadian Traffic Education Center). The course costs $550.00. Go to their website.

Included in the course is classroom instruction, practicing emergency procedures with obstacles, working with a simulator with individual help, and the use of skid vehicles.

You would think this would make an excellent gift to a young person from anyone who loves him/her. Andy offered me a two for one deal on the spot, if Martin and I went with the idea of becoming advocates. (I should push him, maybe, it will be free?!)

Brigitte?
You are now my hero.
I say go for it. My parents are paying for me to take a course in Ontario. In fact, my mom freaked about the price until I showed who all the people who sadly died this winter. She couldn't write the cheque fast enough. I came here from the gigababy site (it's called a new name now). You're a strong lady. God bless you.

Winter driving is serious business and it is worth sharing a few pointers to help in dealing with the upcoming winter season. Before heading out during winter conditions you should also check your brakes, windshield wipers, and heat and defrost system to make sure they are all in proper working condition. Cold weather will cause your tires to lose pressure, so you need to maintain them accordingly. Tire tread depth should be 1/8-inch at the least. Remember your vehicle can't slow down or stop rapidly on snowy roads. Turning performance is also decreased. On snow-covered roads there is significantly less friction between the road and your tires. Make sure to slow down if the road is snow packed. Texas Defensive Driving School Online Course
