adts training saves lifes

 

I just wanted to send you an email about an incident that happened to me yesterday. I don't know if our company is still doing the ADTS advanced driving training that we did in March, but I feel that the skills I learned during that possibly saved my life yesterday.

On the highway a construction truck pulled out right in front of me through an emergency vehicle median and, with the skills we learned, I was able to avoid that truck, weave through construction cones, and, avoid traffic in the next lane, all at 60 MPH!


Obviously a scary moment for me but I just wanted to let you know that there is actual value that can be taken from that course and I am grateful those skills prevented a bad accident. 


I can honestly say that without that training, my life would have been substantially different, in a negative way, today so just wanted to say thanks!

Hi all, Just wanted to let you know how valuable your course was.


Today I had a car that just broke in front of me traveling at 50mph.


The accident avoidance maneuver we were taught came to my mind in a split second and I just did that!


I missed the car as I already had my exit strategy in place (the shoulder) I went from right to left then back to the straight position. It all happened so quick and I kept on traveling afterwards as if nothing happened.


I don't even think anyone behind us even noticed that what I did was a safety maneuver since it felt so natural and probably looked very natural.


Thanks again for your valuable training and the great instructors.

Can you please let Mike know I was pretty grateful for the skills I learned on Monday.


Yesterday, I was able to put some of those skills to use TWICE on my drive home.


No joke. I was starting to wonder if getting home last night was in the cards for me.


It was ridiculous…but those maneuvers worked like a charm.

 

Thank You,

Division Safety Alert … Especially you folks in Chicago. 

Not more than 24 hours after our safety training, I was driving towards Chicago on I-290, traveling a safe distance back with both hands on the wheel, when what appeared to be a crow bar flew out of the pick-up truck in front of me.

 
Going 55 MPH, I hit the brake and dropped below 30 MPH as the bar was roughly windshield height.  Hands at 9&3, I manuevered onto the shoulder, straightened out, and had to quickly get back in the left lane as the truck had slammed on his brakes and pulled off onto the shoulder.

 

I am truly thankful I had this invaluable training fresh in my mind as I may not have made it home to my fiancé this evening…

 

Just a reminder to everyone, none of this means anything if you don’t get home every night to the ones you love.

I completed the ADTS course Friday Feb 27 in Houston Texas.  Rick, David, and Brian were the instructors.  Brian was the driving coach and he drilled into us the accident avoidance maneuver.  The following Thursday night I used this skill to avoid an accident.

 

I was traveling 45 mph in the middle lane of a three lane road.  There was a vehicle ahead of me in the right lane turning right into a business.  There was a vehicle in that same entrance wanting to turn left.  The right turning vehicle shielded the driver's vision and it pulled out if front of me.  I knew the lane to my left was clear so I swerved left and then right once clear of the vehicle. 

 

Honestly I do not know how I missed the vehicle but I am glad I had recently practiced the skill.

 

It would be great if you could forward this success story on to Brian.

Thank you.
