I went through the advanced collision avoidance last year. The skills we learned were simple, but they reinforced good habits. I was able avoid a collision on the freeway only a couple of weeks after taking this course. A car going off the exit suddenly changed his mind and came barreling into my lane. I performed an evasive maneuver and was able to miss his car within inches. If I had not known what my car could do, he would have surely hit me. In the course we practiced this same scenario over and over and when it happened to me on the road my instincts and training kicked in.
