Massy offers a new driving academy

Thousands of aspiring and current drivers in Barbados are set to broaden their skills in motoring when the Massy United Insurance Driving Skills Academy opens in November

The academy, brainchild of businessman Mark Maloney, will be based at Bushy Park Racing Circuit Inc. in St Philip and has the full backing and sponsorship of Massy United Insurance, a leader in their field and an AM Best rated Company.

Under the guidance of experienced, international driver and instructor, Steve Deeks, the Massy United Insurance Driving Skills Academy will cater towards everyone with a driver’s license and young adults between the ages of 12 and 16.

Skills will include better defensive driving techniques, helping drivers reduce the risk of accidents and improving their dexterity by applying simplified methods.

“Essentially what we will do is make drivers feel more confident in all situations, conduct stimulations on adhering to driving laws and make you leave the one-day course a better driver,” said Deeks, who has set up several other academies in Europe.

“The fatalities on our roads are greater than they ever have been, the cars are being made faster and drivers are not being as careful as they should be, so I think it is vital that this academy is being setup now,” said Maloney, Executive Chairman of Bushy Park Racing Circuit Inc.

“People’s ability to control things must become better and what we will be doing is to teach people how to avoid having accidents…things you won’t learn when you get your license. It will be phenomenal for Barbados,” he said.

Business Manager for Massy United Insurance Barbados, Sharron Alleyne-Elcock says the vision of the sponsors is to reduce the number of road accidents on the island.

“We want to be a force of good in our society. This launch of the Massy United Insurance Driving Academy is a first in Barbados and it falls in line with our best practices for our existing and prospective clients,” she said.

The Massy United Insurance Driving Skills Academy will be opened by mid November.

      And who is allowing them to do that? The Chicken Georges we put in parliament. This man has more power in Barbados than the Prime Minister. Was it not him who middled -fingered the Town and Country Planning Department, which comes under the portfolio of our dear PM, over an illegal structure?
      As a people, we have not move very far from the N-Yard or the plantation spreading evergreen tree.
      We could save ourselves a lot of bother and money by saying goodbye to both the DLP and the BLP, and reinstate the Conservatives back into our Parliament. By-pass the monkies and go straight to the Organ Grinders.
