Teen Driver Safety: Additional Research Could Help States Strengthen Graduated Driver Licensing Systems (ISBN: 1437934242)
By Susan Fleming (Paperback, 56 pages, 2010, $20)
As a result, states have increasingly adopted laws to limit teen driving exposure, such as Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL) systems, which consist of three stages: a learner’s permit allowing driving only under supervision; intermediate licensure allowing unsupervised driving with restrictions; and full licensure. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) supports state teen driver safety programs.
This report identifies: (1) key GDL system requirements and the extent to which state programs include these requirements; and (2) challenges states face to improve teen driver safety and how states and NHTSA have addressed the challenges. Illustrations.
