Join Us for a Joint Meeting of DSV and ASSE

Each April, DRIVE SMART Virginia and ASSE Colonial Chapter hold a joint meeting at the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety in Ruckersville. The has become one of our most popular events through the years and usually sells out. Plan to join us on April 11th as we tour the facility, view a crash test, enjoy a catered lunch, and hear from IIHS Executive Vice President, David Zuby.
