Drive Smart Georgia announces new partnership with MADD Atlanta
Drive Smart Georgia, the only driving school in Atlanta that specializes in teaching teens how to drive, is proud to announce our new partnership with MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving). On Sept. 26, Drive Smart Georgia and AAA will participate in the “Atlanta Walk Like MADD and MADD Dash.” Then, on Oct. 17th, MADD, AAA and DSG will join forces to host a free Teen Driver Safety community event in our parking lot. “I couldn’t be more pleased about this new partnership,” states General Manager Kirk Bressette. “MADD is committed to keeping teens safe on the road, which is our #1 priority each and every day!”
A grieving mother started MADD in 1980. Since its inception, MADD has made great strides to end drunk driving, help fight drugged driving, support the victims of these violent crimes, and prevent underage drinking. Drive Smart Georgia is proud to support this worthy and impactful organization.
