FLORHAM PARK — AAA and the Travel Channel have teamed up to help rehabilitate the bad habits of some of America’s worst drivers. The two iconic brands will partner in the new reality series “America’s Worst Driver,” premiering Sunday, March 14, at 10 p.m.
In the new reality series, bad drivers in eight major American cities, who are nominated by friends and family, compete in various driving challenges to identify the worst local driver. The participant earning the distinction of the worst driver from each city will watch as their car is destroyed. Each will move onto the finale for a chance to redeem themselves behind the wheel and avoid earning the title of America’s Worst Driver. The worst drivers in the New York metro area will be featured on the Sunday, April 18 episode.
A AAA Driver Training expert will provide tips for avoiding dangerous situations and lends instruction on safe driving throughout the program. AAA New Jersey Automobile Club offers the same expert instruction and advice to northern New Jersey drivers through a variety of driver training programs for every stage of life – from teen drivers to senior drivers and everything in-between.
Car crashes are the leading cause of death for 15- to 20-year-olds, so it’s important to ensure that teens receive high quality instruction as they learn to drive. “Dare to Prepare” is an educational workshop that educates teens and their parents and prepares them for the learning-to-drive process.
More experienced drivers who may need a refresher course on certain aspects of safe driving can participate in the AAA Driver Improvement Program through two area driving schools – Nice Touch Driving School in East Hanover and LCDI in Millburn.
Mature drivers face a unique set of challenges, and AAA New Jersey Automobile Club offers a number of programs designed to keep older drivers driving safely for as long as possible, including CarFit – a program designed to help older Americans drive more safely by determining the proper fit in the vehicle.
