Skid Monster

The weather can provide many hazards to drivers on the roads. It is important to know how to prevent, how to detect, and how to correct a reduced-traction condition. The Skid Monster Driving System allows drivers to increase their risk management during every day driving by acquiring habits that have safeguards built into them. It also allows students to experience the consequences of bad driving and see how much easier it is to keep the vehicle in control rather to regain control.
Instructors place students in a variety of situations to teach the students a variety of lessons. These include:
  • Prevention, detection, and correction of skids
  • Vision training to keep car balanced
  • How to prevent SUV rollover crashes
  • Consequences of tailgating
  • Why and how to control speed at curves
  • How to control blowouts at highway speeds
  • Off-road recovery under various conditions
  • Reaction to sudden obstacles in the path
  • Effective use of ABS braking
The Skid Monster Driving System is available to organizations as well. We offer a wide range of driver risk-reduction programs that are great for organizations such as:
  • Corporate programs
  • Municipal programs
  • Police, fire, and EMS emergency vehicle programs
  • Advanced driver performance programs
  • Military driver enhancement programs
  • Teen and senior driver programs

Anyone can take the Skid Monster Driver Enhancement course at Hawkeye.
