Research shows that brain fitness programs can help drivers cut their risks of being involved in a car crash by up to 50% and increase their confidence while driving at night and in congested traffic. Such programs sharpen the most important safety equipment of all: the mind of the driver, says the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety.

 

“AAA is committed to helping the growing mature population drive as long and safely as possible,” said Mahlon G. (Lon) Anderson, AAA Mid-Atlantic’s Director of Government and Public Affairs.

 

“One approach to this is by offering motorists an interactive series of game-like computer exercises that independent studies have shown improves reaction time, reduces crash risk and increases control in most driving conditions.”

 

To this end, the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety announced that it would join with Posit Science, the leading provider of brain fitness programs, to enhance driver safety by improving drivers’ minds.

 

The AAA Foundation is recommending a new, ground-breaking safety program called DriveSharp™ which Posit Science is releasing to the public this week.

 

DriveSharp is an interactive series of game-like computer exercises shown in independent studies to improve reaction time, reduce crash risk and increase control in most driving conditions. DriveSharp consists of two computer-based exercises comprising over ten hours in length that improves reaction time, visual processing speed, useful field of view and driving ability.

 

“This is an important breakthrough in helping our members assess their driving risks and then enabling them to do something about it,” Anderson commented. “The studies show that on average just 10 hours of training will help people drive longer and safer, which is something we all want.”

 

DriveSharp can help you:

 

 

 

· Cut your risk of a car crash by up to 50%

 

· Increase useful field of view by up to 200%

 

· Reduce stopping distance by up to 22 feet at 55 mph

 

· Increase confidence while driving at night and in congested traffic.

 

In just twenty minutes a day, three times per week, DriveSharp can train your brain. DriveSharp’s technology has been extensively validated in studies funded by the National Institutes of Health and its benefits documented in dozens of peer-reviewed articles in leading science and medical journals.

 

The technology has been shown in studies to reduce crash risk by up to 50 percent, improve stopping distance by up to 22 feet at 55 miles per hour, and assist drivers in maintaining safe driving abilities as they age.

 

“We are pleased to join with Posit Science to offer a unique technological tool to an audience that is looking for ways to think faster on the road in order to maintain or improve their driving safety,” said Anderson.

 

This technology is now available for the first time to the public in a product designed to improve reaction time and control on the road. DriveSharp retails for $139, but is available for $129 at www.DriveSharpNow.com.

 

However, AAA Mid-Atlantic is offering DriveSharp to its members at the discounted price of $99 at
