Colorado Attitudinal Dynamics of Driving
Defensive Driving Course
ONE WAY TO A SAFER
The Attitudinal Dynamics of Driving (ADoD) defensive driving course was developed by the National
Safety Council. This 6-hour course is taught by certified law enforcement
instructors and is designed for drivers of all ages who wish to improve their
skills or have been mandated by the courts to take such a course. This course
is provided by the Colorado State Patrol Family Foundation.
Our goal is to reduce the number of violations, injuries and fatalities
associated with automobile crashes. The course includes defensive driving
principles and strategies, factors that create risk, recognizing unsafe driving
situations, and furthering the understanding that our choices are based on
thought and reason. Participants are taught to take responsibility for their
behavior and to make the right driving choices.
