Friends Lauren Adkins and Megan Wilde attended Saturday's Be Responsible and Keep Everyone Safe (BRAKES), a national teen defensive driving program, taking turns getting behind the wheel and practicing courses to strengthen their skills. Drag racing champion Doug Herbert created BRAKES after he lost his two sons in a tragic car crash. The event was held the Missouri EVCO Training Center, 2302 Militia Dr., with 37 attending Saturday's class. There will be another class at 8 a.m. today. "I had to wake up really early in the morning," said Adkins, a Lake of the Ozarks resident.
