driver education 2012

More Info
									I keep wondering why the American public does not care about the large
number of young drivers involved in car accidents. In addition, there is
virtually no understanding of the impact of driver training on conducting
good girl. To frame the case, here are some statistics from 2009 provided
by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and National Highway
Traffic Safety Administration.

- Eight teenagers aged 16 to 19 died every day from traffic injuries.

- About 3,000 U.S. teenagers aged 15-19 were killed.

- More than 350,000 were treated in emergency departments for injuries
sustained in motor vehicle crashes.

Given the above statistics, it is evident that the preparation of young
drivers is a better piece of the puzzle as well as programs of graduated
licensing laws in many states. However, it seems that the public does not
understand the meaning of these numbers or do not care. My belief is that
people see this as a terrible thing, but my son will not be a statistic.
Daughter of the other person will be involved in a car accident and my
daughter has a very low chance of this happening to him.

Everything starts with a good base and that is what drivers education is
all about. It amazes me that so many people do not understand the
importance of this point.

One problem is that education in the United States historically pilots
have been taught in public schools with untrained teachers. This created
a framework for the general public to update the driver training over the
years as having no value. Recently, due to a variety of factors in most
public schools no longer offer drivers ed. Public schools have never been
the appropriate place for this type of education and now private driving
schools have emerged that take driver training very seriously.

The first 6 months of driving, in particular, are very dangerous   for a
new driver. Engines "programs" that were instilled during driver   training
must be reinforced and practiced often. If a good driving school   was
chosen, parents should be armed with information and the ability   to coach
their teens through this dangerous first year.

Here are some tips to help your teen survive their first year of driving:

1) Pay special attention to graduated licensing laws in your state - they
have proven to be effective and should be followed closely.

2) Having a focus on driving during the novice phase is particularly

3) the general view is important for all drivers. And novices should pay
particular attention to this area.

The bottom line is that the driving is a very difficult task to learn.
Add to that the fact that teenagers have many things in their lives,
compounding the difficulty of learning to drive. Finally, please realize
that your teen may be a statistic and please take the driver training
