Carlsbad, CA. Del Sol Chapter GLA
"Both my mom and I thoroughly enjoyed Mrs. Winborne's SteerSmart program. She had endless valuable information that were not the obvious things that are all told all of the time. As someone who gets nervous about driving, and with a mother who is equally nervous about her daughter driving, we both walked away from the program feeling more confident and knowledgeable. Lauren was wonderful and straight to the point, and we found everything she had to say to be very insightful."

It never hurts to keep drumming that information into our girls as well as reinforcement for us."

"I've decided that I'm going to be a more attentive passenger. I also learned that it night not be you that is being unsafe, and I need to be more aware of those around me."
"I plan on being a more cautious driver when driving on the freeways."
"I will never text and drive after seeing that clip, and I will not be a passenger of a driver who texts and drives. I liked learning about the safety tips around trucks."

you that is being unsafe, and I need to be more aware of those around us."
