Warning: Driver Education Can Kill Your Teenager Description

The Number One Killer of Teenagers in America is a Traffic Crash

Even though we have had driver education for over three generations, that statistic remains unchanged. But, it doesn’t have to be that way.

In this book, Patrick Barrett traces the history of driver education’s failure to produce safer drivers. He identifies it causes for failure and provides a real answer for how we can reduce collisions by 50%.

While technology has improved vehicle design and made the roads safer, driver education has not advanced. It continues to use the same outdated formula adopted in 1949 of five hours of classroom instruction for every one hour of in-vehicle training.

The so-called stakeholders in driver education have a vested interest in maintaining the status quo. As long as the current standards and same agencies continue to rule driver education, you can expect driver education to continue to fail.

Mr. Barrett shows how the lack of accountability and the use of a time-based standards and a public school format that emphasizes classroom over in-vehicle training creates a system in which new drivers know just enough to be dangerous.

Included in this book are the “7 Deadly Mistakes Parents Make When Choosing Driver Education for their Teen” and how parents can avoid these tragic mistakes.

In addition, this book contains resources, options for a mastery-based approach, and opportunities for individuals and organizations who want to make a difference in producing safer drivers.
