Save lives with defensive driving

Judicial Services offers opportunities to improve your future and the future of your community through courses, workshops and volunteer opportunities.

Partnering with the 19th Judicial Circuit Court for over 20 years, Judicial Services offers the National Safety Council’s award-winning Defensive Driving Courses including the “Alive at 25” program.

Christine Burke of Lake Barrington enrolled in our Defensive Driving Course. While driving less than a week later, she used a lesson from the course to narrowly avoid getting smashed broadside by a car that ran a red light.

Burke said that she hesitated at the intersection, recalling a tip she learned in the defensive driving course called “delayed acceleration” waiting two or three seconds before entering an intersection if yours is the first car there. She credits this decision with saving her life.

“I just missed being killed by about three seconds.”— Christine Burke praising CLC’s defensive driving course.
