AN ADVANCED DRIVER EDUCTION PROGRAM

This paper describes An Advanced Driver Education Program developed at General Motors Proving Ground. The program is designed around the concept of training drivers to handle specific driving emergencies that accident causation data indicates are driver problems. The method of determining the driving emergencies which are problem areas are discussed in detail as are the individual training exercises. Evaluation of this program by means of comparing trained and untrained control groups indicates a large reduction in both numbers of accidents and accident severity. /SAE/
