To prevent injuries and save lives by training and educating teenage drivers and their parents about safe and responsible driving.
On January 26, 2008, Doug Herbert's two son's, Jon 17, and James, 12, lost their lives in a tragic automobile accident that took place near their home in Cornelius, N.C. Herbert wanted to help prevent other parents from experiencing the same tragedy he had endured so he decided to found a non-profit organization and they chose B.R.A.K.E.S. (Be Responsible and Keep Everyone Safe). The Charity hosts a free 4 hour defensive driving school for teen drivers age 15-19 years old.
To date, we have trained over 30,000 students, hosted schools in 24 states, teens have come from 43 different states and 5 different countries.
