Q: What happens if I wreck the car?
A: RPDE inspects each car prior to running every day and makes sure each student understands what they are doing before they climb in the car, so accidents are almost nonexistent. However, in the event of an incident, to summarize the liability waiver every participant must sign before participating, RPDE is responsible for any equipment damage and participant covers any personal damage.
