The MasterDrive Experience was recently the primary focus of an article written by Kevin A. Wilson in AutoWeek magazine, entitled “Who’s Teaching The Teens?” Wilson is a long-time writer for AutoWeek, and is nationally known for his involvement in changing the perception and strategies of training teen drivers.
Every parent of every teen driver should not only read but study this article, to make their own determination, because every child is at a high level of risk. More than 5,000 teens will die in car crashes in this country this year. More than 300,000 will be seriously injured! 80% of new teen drivers will be in a crash the first two years.
Do we all basically know this? Of course. It’s no secret. It’s catastrophic! Everyone knows and talks about how terrible it is. Insurance companies can quote you the staggering statistics. National safety experts will quote the statistics. But who is going to define the standards – the solutions?
