Raising the driving age in California might never fly, but there are some potential lessons to learn from other communities. A post on RaiseDrivingAge.org has some useful related resources.
Instead of restricting driving, I wonder what it would be like if we invested in driver education training. I’m not talking just about classroom rules of the road. I’m talking about skills training. Driving into and out of a skid, pulling a stunt driver one eighty.
Law enforcement gets some extra training. I see no reason why our youth couldn’t use some extra skills training along with simulator time.
