Jeff Gordon Chevrolet Assists Local Girl Scouts in Attaining Car Sense Badge

Thirty four North Carolina Coastal Pines Girl Scouts learned about becoming safe informed drivers at the Car Sense Badge Workshop held at Jeff Gordon Chevrolet. The activities included skill builders such as checking fluids, changing oil/filters, checking tire pressure and assembling a roadside emergency kit. They also learned about vehicle technology including how anti-lock brakes work, air bags and even how to research vehicle prices and safety ratings on line.

Trooper Phillips and Trooper Smith of the N.C. Highway Patrol spoke at length to the Girl Scouts about the dangers of drinking while driving, texting while driving and what it means to be a defensive driver. The Troopers also discussed the responsibility of a drivers license and how to register a vehicle. At the conclusion, the girls all got an opportunity to sit in a Patrol Car.

Not surprising, the girls picked the new Camaro as their favorite car on the lot.

"We look forward to assisting the Girl Scouts in this important endeavor" said Jeff Gordon Chevrolet’s General Sales Manager Scott Spivey. "The scouts are learning important basic skills like checking tire pressure and oil/windshield washer fluid levels which will help make them more confident drivers and car owners."

Jeff Gordon Chevrolet offers New Owner Clinics and a monthly Ladies Night where our female
friendly Certified GM Sales Associates set up Bluetooth and offer Test Drives in a relaxed, no pressure setting.
