SKIDCAR System, Inc. was honored to be a part of the "Oregon DPSST Academy Tour" during the
2013 IADLEST Conference in Portland this month. Company President Dane Pitarresi was
overwhelmed when three busses of IADLEST attendees arrived for the one hour stop at the
EVOC pad on a beautiful and sunny day in central Willamette Valley. Academy Director Eriks
Gabliks and his team did a stunning job giving SKIDCAR System, Inc. the opportunity to present
their products and services to the law enforcement training professionals visiting from seven
With departments focused on the combined importance of offering vital driver training to their
students while carefully staying within budgets, SKIDCAR™ is an obvious choice for advanced
training in small areas. No other technologies available today can match the realism and
flexibility of the SKIDCAR.
It was truly a great opportunity to allow 24 of the attendees to experience a demonstration in
the SKIDCAR as well as our exclusive ESC WORKSHOP FOR EVOC INSTRUCTORS, which provides
critical orientation needed for operating mixed EVOC fleets with today's new police vehicles.
The major introduction though, was the demonstration rides some of the motorcycle riders
received on the new SKIDBIKE™. This new motorcycle rider training technology, in only its third
showing, is proving to be an innovation of importance that cannot be ignored. With the
invaluable ability to learn through mistake, the SKIDBIKE is the first rider training tool available
to afford agencies and rider training schools the opportunity to teach core concepts and
techniques that previously only came through the experience of a fall.
The SKIDBIKE is quickly living up to its tag line, "THE CRASH WITHOUT THE RASH".
Through translation, an academy Director from Mexico stated, "This bike affords the rider to live
through a mistake he has made. He can learn what he has done wrong, and learn to avoid the
problem, with proper technique.”
We want to again thank the Oregon DPSST, Director Eriks Gabliks, and IADLEST for providing us
the opportunity to present these technologies and ESC Workshop to this group of decision
makers, tasked with moving public safety forward.
