Anyone got a good recommendation for defensive driving website?

I hate when it's raining like this that you get at least 5 people ask "Did you ride your motorcycle today?" Then start laughing like there joke is original.

You didn't tell the officer you were "following the law"?

Anyhow, I took DD twice with http://www.laffspot.com/defensive.htm at the America's Buffet off 59 in Sugarland. The guy's pretty funny and you get to eat/drink while you're there, since lunch and refreshments are included. Better than sitting in front of a computer for hours on end at home.

ERC sounds good. I heard about this but never looked into it any more.

Free food and drinks?! Feed my skinny !

Dont waste your money on erc. It is essentially a msf review.

You may want to look at LSTD. I beleive if you do a trackday with them this would suffice for defensive driving.

I'm qualified for it but I think it's better for me to do the defensive driving. Man those biker cops set me up.

I thought deferred judication just means they'll delay making a judgement on your case. It is only useful if you have already taken Defensive Driving Course less than a yr ago (to dismiss a previous ticket) and cannot take another DD until a full yr has passed.
