What They're Saying

When you don that green beret you will be shouldering a legacy. Your actions from here on out will no longer be solely a reflection on you, but on the entire Special Forces regiment, past and present ... Our accomplishments speak for themselves, we don't have to.

- Lt. Col. George M. Bond, commander of 1st Battalion, 1st Special Warfare Training Group (Airborne) at Fort Bragg, N.C. and the guest speaker at the 266th Special Forces Qualification Course ceremony, refers to the Special Forces tradition of acting as quiet professionals while addressing the 100 graduating Soldiers who entered the ranks of the U.S. Army's Special Forces Regiment at the Crown Coliseum in Fayetteville, N.C., on Feb. 23, 2012.

Roadrageous

What is it?

Roadrageous is an eight-hour classroom course addressing the root causes of aggressive driving. Produced by the American Institute for Public Safety, the training combines instruction, skits, games, videos, student-instructor interaction and student-student interaction to help drivers acknowledge their negative driving habits and attitudes. The goal is to give students a toolkit to change their behavior and decision-making process behind the wheel.

What has Army done?

The Army selected Roadrageous training as a part of its current Army Traffic Safety Training Program. The purpose is to provide driver improvement/remedial training for military or civilian personnel convicted of a moving traffic violation or determined to be at fault for a traffic mishap while operating a government motor vehicle.

What does the Army have planned for the future?

The director of Army Safety encourages Army organizations to implement Roadrageous training as part of their accident prevention efforts. Roadrageous training is provided to Army organizations through Cape Fox Government Services. Units seeking to obtain the training should contact their garrison safety office.

Why is this important to the Army?

Independent studies have shown Roadrageous training to be effective in reducing collisions by 64 to 74 percent. Preventing motor vehicle accidents preserves valuable resources while protecting Soldiers and civilians from injury or death.
