It all started with the One Second Advantage

Driving Dynamics was established in 1987 through the vision of founder Bill Buff, who achieved notable success as a professional race car driver, when he realized that the most dangerous part of his day occurred while driving to and from the racetrack.

30years_logoDetermined to help improve drivers’ safety performance behind-the-wheel he soon conceived the principle on which Driving Dynamics’ safety training curriculum is based—the One Second Advantage.

Rooted in a major automotive safety research study that determined 90 percent of all traffic crashes can be avoided when a driver has one more second to react and knows what to do with it —the One Second Advantage has been, and to this day is the cornerstone philosophy of all training programs offered by the company.

Upon the retirement of company founders Bill Buff and Paull Hubbard in 2017 Art Liggio, president and CEO, has acquired full ownership of Driving Dynamics along with majority owner investment firm Intuitis LLC, with offices in New York and Paris and Delancey Street Capital Partners, based in Conshohocken, Pennsylvania.

Now under the leadership of managing owner Art Liggio, Driving Dynamics has been steadfastly enhancing existing services and introducing new services to assure the company remains at the forefront of addressing the needs of fleet operators to: respond to today’s driver safety challenges, improve fleet safety performance and adapt to new vehicle technologies.

"The best way for drivers to stay safe is to see farther ahead so that they can identify problems that might occur, and then avoid them completely."  

~ Art Liggio, Driving Dynamics president and CEO
