Excerpt
Excerpt: The problem - Automobile crashes are the number one cause of death for African Americans from birth through age 14, and the number two cause of death for African Americans ages 14 through 24. // Per mile traveled, African American males ages 13-19 are nearly twice as likely to die in a motor vehicle crash than males in general, according to the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health Center for Injury Research and Policy. // All teen drivers represent only about 6. percent of the driving population, yet are involved in 13.5 percent of drivers in fatal crashes. Two-thirds of those passengers killed in single-vehicle crashes when teens were behind the wheel were also between the ages of 15 and 19. // Learning to drive, especially in today?s traffic, is a complex task that requires extensive practice to gain and maintain skills. // Driver education alone is not sufficient to gain the knowledge and practice necessary. It has been estimated that up to 500 hours of practice is necessary to experience and learn to avoid the risks of driving.
