Present defensive driving training appears to be inadequate in reducing individual propensity for having vehicle accidents. Four DDC graduates each had three negligent accidents during the twenty-one months, while one other had five non-negligent accidents. Furthermore, police drivers having completed defensive driving training experienced both non-negligent and negligent vehicle accidents considerably out of proportion with their percent of the accident involved population.
