Mercedes Benz Club of America-Peachtree Section is organizing a Defensive Driving course with instructors Frank and Mary Alice Cozza, members of MBCA in Ohio, to be held at BUD’S BENZ, (7773 Strickland St, Douglasville, GA 30134) in Douglasville, Georgia, on Saturday, September 12, 2015, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

This course is a low-speed simulation of a variety of highway driving situations.  The course comprises two parts.  In the morning, there will be a brief classroom session.  Afterwards, there will be in-car instructors to guide participants through the course while they learn alternative maneuvers to their driving knowledge when an emergency situation occurs.  Sandwiches from the bakery Maison Robert in Atlanta will be served after the first part of the course.  Participants will be required to pre-order.      

In the afternoon, Frank and Mary Alice will redesign the course, into a slow-speed autocross, so that participants can practice the skills they have acquired in the morning session.

Mary Alice will share with you how this defensive driving course saved her life.  The objective is for participants to know what their cars can do and what they can do with their cars; thereby, making them safer and more alert highway drivers.


The registration fee is $10 per person.   All participants must be 18 years or older and will need to sign a standard MBCA waiver form to participate in this event.

If your street insurance excludes on-track driving, an Autocross + off-track Insurance policy can buy you peace of mind
