“IT’S ABOUT GRIP, NOT SLIP”

SkidCar System Technology enables Law Enforcement, Protective Services, and Emergency Transportation Agencies and companies to train their drivers in the techniques of Skid Avoidance, accident avoidance, and proper driving techniques. SkidCar System enables the adjustment of the co-efficient of friction so any vehicle handling personality or environment can be duplicated in a standard paved area or parking lot.  Instructors have direct and immediate control over scenarios designed around driving and judgment problems and the reactions of the SkidCar System validate the responses of the driver. The SkidCar System meets the requirements of more expensive and prohibitive training options, such as skid pads and driving simulators.
