Taggart's Driving School

Posted on: 2/23/2015

TAGGARTS ALMOST KILLED MY DAUGHTER - STAY AWAY

In August 2014, during her very first driverís ed in-car lesson, Taggartís instructor took daughter who was 15 at the time and had essentially no driving experience, on the connector and I-285 during busy Saturday afternoon traffic. After about an hour of this driving, on 285, the instructor instructed my daughter to change lanes to the left. Daughter checked her blind spot and mirror but a truck came up very fast and struck the car. The instructor claims that she (the instructor) took control of the car before the collision but that my daughter took control back instantly Ė then the car collided with a semi. The instructor told the police this and our daughter was ticketed for an illegal lane change. (The charge was dismissed at arraignment.) We chose Taggartís because it advertised that the cars had instructor-side driving controls to allow instructors to take control of the cars. (Again, the instructor told the police officer that daughter immediately took control of the car back from the instructor. First, we donít believe this to have been the case. Second, why would this even be possible? If the purpose of the instructor controls is to take control of the car away from the student, why would the student be able to take it back immediately; this makes no sense. Fortunately, no one was seriously injured in the accident. However, I am seriously concerned that other kids might be put at grave risk.

Gerber Collision & Glass

Stay away - Dangerous place

I took my car here because it was a State Farm service select shop and was nearby. They did $4,000 of front-end work. The next day, I drove my daughter to Charlotte (4 hours on the expressway) and the next morning the front wheels made lots of noise. I found the only repair shop open on a Sunday and took it there. They showed me that the lower control arm main bolt was missing on the passenger side (see photo), and very loose on the left side. It most likely fell off on the drive. We could have been killed. Needless to say, I would recommend that you stay away from this shop!!

First Rate Roofing

David Damom and First Rate Roofing and Siding are excellent. David and his roofing crew are very fastidious, and especially appropriate for re-roofing an older home. I especially appreciated the fact that David explained everthing they were doing and gave me options as he went. The price was competitive.
