Driving Safely With AAA Vehicle
What could be even better than providing the teenage drivers the total gift of safety?
Well, it looks like such would be the Christmas present that the American Automobile Association’s (AAA) Foundation For Traffic Safety is giving out to those new drivers out there. You see, what is actually happening is that the organization would be allowing teenagers use the Driver-ZED. What is the Driver-ZED? Well, it is actually a software program and is based on a DVD. It is like a game which teenagers can use and play around with. However, it is not all about games for the teenagers would be able to learn about being safe drivers and also teaching them tricks and tips so that they would avoid vehicle catastrophes at the maximum extent. After all, being in crashes could mean losing your arms and limbs and simply not just your car’s Ford Probe performance parts.
Using the Driver-ZED is just like playing a game. Those who have tried it out have certainly said that the experience of using Driver-ZED was knowledgeable and quite fun. Many people have said that such would be the best type of gift one can give to parents who have teenage drivers as children. After all, quite a huge number of vehicle crashes involve teenagers so much so that vehicle crashes can be said to be one of the top killers of teenagers in the country. Such is backed up by data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Peter Kissinger is the AAAFTS president and CEO as well and he does explain the history behind the Driver-Zed: “We developed Driver-ZED specifically to teach teens how to handle the risks they are most likely to encounter on the road by preparing them to make split second decisions. We believe Driver-ZED is a critical tool that will complement and supplement a teen’s driver training.” He also does add, “It would take most people several years of real driving to gain this variety of experiences. Instead, Driver-ZED enables young people to navigate these situations from the safety of their home or classroom, where a mistake results in a lower score rather than a real world crash.”
