Teen Driving and Drivers Education in the 21st Century Webinar
Wednesday, July 25, 2012
Join NCSL for an update on teen driving, graduated driver’s licenses and drivers’ education. Although traffic deaths have decreased for all age groups in recent years, car crashes are still the leading cause of death for teenagers, ages 15 -20. Concerns over the use of mobile devices while driving is also focusing attention on this issue. Graduated driver licensing (GDL) requires a gradual phase-in of driving privileges for novice drivers to help them safely gain experience behind the wheel. Most GDL laws have requirements regarding the age of drivers, passengers, and nighttime driving. GDL programs have also led to a renewed focus on driver education programs. The webinar will feature information and research about GDL laws and the role state legislatures have in developing driver education policies and programs.
