Drivers' Ed: Is It Too Much or Not Enough?

By May 6, 2011

Some adults, like these in Pennsylvania, think that teens aren't getting enough training before scoring their drivers' licenses.

77% of Pennsylvanian voters think that teens should take 15 extra hours of lessons, bumping required hours for that state up to 65. Considering that accident rates for teens are higher than for any other age group, they might be onto something.

Then again, is drivers' ed the issue - or is it the way teens act when they're behind the wheel (texting, talking and blasting music)? Is there a better way to improve teen driving than forcing you to sit in class for longer?
