About 40 people of all ages met at Meridian's Workforce Development today for a lesson in defensive driving.
Street Defensive Driving provides defensive driving courses all across the state. The company trains both young drivers who are still learning and those who have been mandated by court. The instructors say the goal is to create a generation of drivers that is more well-trained.
"If we can learn how to avoid some of those situations and how to recover from some of those things when it happens, then our death rates in the state of Mississippi and Lauderdale County especially is going to diminish. " instructor Andy "Ski" Matuszewski says.
