Jaffarian is CEO of Jaffarian Volvo Toyota Scion in Haverhill, a fourth-generation family business. He’s made young driver safety a personal mission and seen to it that family members have taken the In Control course.
He’ll speak at area driver education programs, emphasizing the dangers of texting and tailgating, and how chances of a collision increase in proportion to the number of people in the car.
Jaffarian also talks of the math of driving: the costs of insurance, maintenance and acquiring a car. He offers each student a card good for a free inspection at his dealerships of any pre-owned car they are thinking of buying.
Strollo calls it a societal problem. “European drivers have far stricter licensing requirements, with mandatory courses like In Control, and as a result they have far fewer crashes.”
