Dealers Driving Road Safety
For the second consecutive year, dealer groups with years of experience hosting safety programs will be staffing the Dealers Driving Road Safety exhibit at the NADA convention.
“Dealers can use these grants to start their own road safety program, tailored to their local needs,” said Andy Koblenz, NADA vice president of legal and regulatory affairs.
The following dealership groups and their staff will be available at the Dealers Driving Road Safety exhibit to meet with dealers interested in learning how to host their own road safety programs:
- Jack Fitzgerald, owner of Fitzgerald Auto Malls, with dealerships in Maryland, Florida and Pennsylvania, and senior members of his staff will be on site to answer questions about starting a program to install child passenger safety seats at the dealership. Since 1999, Fitzgerald’s dealerships have checked more than 41,300 child passenger safety seats.
- DCH Auto Group Vice Chairman Susan Scarola and other DCH staff will be available to discuss safe teen driving. DCH’s teen driving safety initiatives have received national recognition. DCH Auto Group operates 27 dealerships in New Jersey, New York, Connecticut and California.
- Incoming NADA Chairman Bill Underriner and employees from Underriner Motors in Billings, Mont., will lend their expertise on rural driving safety. The state of Montana has the highest percentage of rural roads in the nation, according to the Center for Excellence in Rural Safety.
