National Transportation Safety Board Safety Recommendation, H-05-23 and -24

These safety recommendations, addressed to the Honorable Margaret Spellings, Secretary, U.S. Department of Education, address the effectiveness of driver education and training programs. The National Transportation Safety Board makes the following safety recommendations to the U.S. Department of Education: (H-05-23) In cooperation with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, review current driver education and training programs in use nationally and internationally and determine which instructional tools, training methods, and curricula are consistent with what you have identified as best teaching methodologies and have led to or are likely to lead to a reduction in crashes. Further, incorporate these best practices into a model driver education and training curriculum; and (H-05-24) In cooperation with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, determine the optimum sequencing, in conjunction with graduated driver licensing qualifications, for educating teenagers on safe driving skills, both in the classroom and behind the wheel, and encourage the States to adopt this requirement.
