PADD® Motorsport Group (PMG) was established in 2013 to promote the PADD mission in non-virtual [real world] Motorsports and virtual [SIMulation] Motorsports. Most everyone knows Motorsports is the one of the biggest spectator sports in the world and is also on of the largest participation sports too. When Nikki Kellenyi was killed by a distracted driving related accident on April 15th, 2012, her father Mike was racing online via iRacing.com™ at that very moment. Nikki knew her fathers immense passion for racing as she sat with him many hours while he raced. An avid NASCAR fan, Mike has been to just about every NASCAR track east of the Mississippi. Mike knew when he decided to make a difference to end distracted driving through his daughters death, Motorsports was one of the most effective ways to get the message to the world. Less then two weeks after his daughters death, a special race was held. The Nikki Kellenyi 250 at Michigan International Speedway was broadcast to the world. As he sat at home and watched the race with his family and friends, he realized how lucky he was to be a part of the Motorsport family. This provided the 'full fuel load and setup' he needed for his ultimate race...taking the green flag to END DISTRACTED DRIVING for Nikki and ALL persons ==== motorist, passengers and pedestrians. Read how it got rolling.

Driver Safer GDL
A TEEN SAFE DRIVER IS ELIGIBLE FOR DEFENSIVE DRIVING AUTO INSURANCE DISCOUNTS.
Every school and parent hope for a teen safe driver, and we have the right solution with a defensive driving course NJ. Additional benefits even include defensive driving auto insurance discounts.
Injuries and fatalities due to teen driver inexperience is clearly a daunting situation; however, some significant progress has been made.
The Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL) programs reducing the number of people that can drive with teen drivers, as well as the number of hours that teens can drive, have made a tremendous impact; however, this alone is not the solution.
While studies show that reducing these factors does reduce the incidence of motor vehicle accidents when teens are behind the wheel, it does not address the problem at its root cause: teens must learn how to more safely control their vehicles in the conditions that drivers experience on the roads. This is where a defensive driving course NJ can help.
By making a difference today your making a difference for tomorrow
