How do police officers chase after criminals without crashing?

For many it's because they train with the skid monster.

It's hands on learning, teaching people how to be better drivers-especially in the winter. The car stimulates what it would be like to loose control while driving on ice.

An instructor inside the car controls the back tires. 

The regional transportation center in Waterloo is now offering courses for people to take so they can learn defensive driving using the skid monster.

Contact Celeste.Turner@hawkeyecollege.edu if you are interested in taking a course.
