DRIVER EDUCATION: CAN ITS GOAL BE REALISTICALLY MET?
Two courses of action are recommended for further investigation which would improve driver education. The first is the development of materials to be used throughout the school curriculum and aimed at increasing the student's information about, appreciation of, and concern for highway safety. The second is the implementation of a graduated driver license whereby the young driver is introduced more gradually into the driving population on the basis of experience and demonstrated skill. Such a graduated driver license would require the coordinated efforts of driver education instructors, driver license administrators, enforcement personnel and parents. While such courses of action would be costly, they would not cost as much as elaborate expansion of behind-the-wheel training within the school system.
