Collision Avoidance Training

The Howard County Police Department continues to offer its new, exciting traffic safety program for teens this spring. Collision Avoidance Training, or CAT, is designed especially for teenage drivers who have driver's licenses but who need more specialized experience on the road. CAT is an advanced, two-day defensive driving and vehicle control program. Students learn evasive maneuvers, threshold and emergency braking, cornering, backing, skid recovery, off-road recovery and more. The next class will be offered Friday, April 23, and Saturday, April 24. Students must attend both sessions, have a valid driver's license and must bring a vehicle to drive. On Friday, students attend classroom instruction from 6 to 10 p.m. On Saturday, the teens get behind the wheel for on-the-road practice from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The training takes place at the James N. Robey Public Safety Training Center, 2200 Scott Wheeler Drive (formerly Alpha Center Drive), Marriottsville. The cost of the program is $195. Class size is limited. To register, please call 410-313-3758.
