Crash Course video

Toyota Driving Expectations is a free four-hour driver’s education program that gets teens behind the wheel to experience real dangers in a safe setting, so they can learn how to avoid and deal with similar situations on the road.

Pro drivers ride with participants, guiding them through several different hands-on driving and classroom sessions.

Scouts from Troop 1, Griffin, Ga., and Troop 161 took part in the program at the Atlanta Motor Speedway where they got in the driver’s seat to learn how NOT to crash.

Check out this video to see what happens when a driver tries to talk on a cellphone, listen to the radio, close the sunroof and drink bottled water — all at the same time:

Check out the next video to learn how a car’s anti-lock braking system (ABS) lets you brake while steering:

    on the toyota camery it would make a difference if you used a chevy tahoe. because you change the weight the power and the length and width. plus the stopping power and the abs system. where is pedro

  17. I like thoseshow and how they show how to not crash

  18. why did they turn on their radio

  19. :lol: thats funny the blue car made a LOUD Screach!!!!!!!!

  20. That was AWSOME!!

  21. What they want them to crash ??

  22. I think that this is a good thing. Although I feel that if there were better footage from outside the vehicle those that have negative responses would change their tone. Also those with negative comments need to understand what this is about, a learning process on what can happen with distractions, and it was in a controlled enviroment with safety in mind.

  23. I learned a lot from this video.

  24. buddy,

    i agree with buddy

  33. They could have done a better job video taping.

  34. it would be better if someone was on the road in town

  35. i agree with peace out on someone should have crashed or at least almost crash into someone else.

  36. I think the video would be better if someone crashed or almost crashed.

  37. why didnt they use stick shifts, thats the real fun part

  38. i thought the first video had cars crashing on a track! i agree with buddy, what was the water thing about?

  39. WOW! I thought that that was cool. I also was wondering about the water thing
    was that supposed to happen? Or was it supposed to be practice. or was it just to showoff the toyota’s and how good they can be when floods happen. Also i was wondering if other cars could do that as well or is it just
    to try to get people to buy toyota’s?

  40. That was cool. But why did they do that was it for practice? I thuoght the rest was cool thoe and they did prety good.

  41. that was pretty cool but nobody crashed

  42. do they want them to crash?!?!
