The founder of The Driver's Seat, Eddie "Skip" Gibson, has lived in Anchorage for the past 25 years. After being honorably discharged from the military with 28 years of service, he became a Driving Safety instructor with the US Postal Service.
As Alaska District's DSI (Driving Safety Instructor), Mr. Gibson served all of the postal facilities in Alaska with their needs for driver training. For 15 years he taught newly assigned postal workers the fundamentals and techniques of safely driving various postal vehicles.
Mr. Gibson is now passing it forward by utilizing his Military Skills and Postal Service background to assist new drivers in our civilian community in becoming safer drivers.
He says, "Our goal is to make a difference in our student's driving experience by impressing upon them the seriousness of becoming a Defensive Driver."
The Driver's Seat "Safe Driving Philosophy" demonstrates the fundamentals of staying focused while driving and teach the proper "Techniques of Safe Driving." These teachings will improve new driver's overall knowledge of our roadways."
Many are unaware that motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of casualties and injury among new drivers between the ages of 18-24!!
If you're not a part of the solution in resolving this dilemma then,...you're part of the problem.
Let's collectively say, Driver Education is a good thing for everyone.
