Car crashes are the number-one cause of death among teens in the United States. Even scarier – more than 90 percent of all crashes are caused by human error, such as texting, speeding or impaired driving. To end preventable injuries and death, DENSO has donated $125,000 in 2019 to extend and expand its partnership with national teen defensive driving program B.R.A.K.E.S. (Be Responsible And Keep Everyone Safe).
Founded by NHRA drag racing star Doug Herbert, the B.R.A.K.E.S. charity offers young drivers across the country, and their parents, free, extensive behind-the-wheel training to reduce auto crashes.
DENSO and B.R.A.K.E.S. are committed to educating drivers of all ages on the dangers of distracted driving. We hit the track at the DENSO Spark Plugs NHRA Four-Wide Nationals race in Las Vegas, April 5-7, to talk to NHRA drivers about the importance of safe driving.
