Also from Phil Berardelli, two books to foster safe driving at any age!
The population of senior drivers is exploding and figures to create major problems for highway planners and safety experts -- or will it? In Safe Senior Drivers, Phil and five other writers explore this important topic in detail, with dedication, and with sensitivity and humor.
In The Driving Challenge, Phil encourages drivers of all ages to look deeply within themselves to determine if they are acting in their best interests -- and in the best interests of their passengers and fellow motorists -- on the road.

Sixteen is by far the most dangerous age on the road. A 16-year-old is twelve times more likely than older drivers to die in a crash as a single occupant. Put two young teens in a vehicle, and the odds of death and injury nearly double. Three or four unsupervised teens riding together constitute a recipe for disaster. Despite these sobering facts, the procedure for obtaining a drivers license in most states remains minimal. Some don’t even require a learner’s permit. Some allow the permit to be obtained before age 16. Although some states have installed graduated licensing, with sensible restrictions for the youngest drivers, many still impose only the most minimal requirements.
The condition of formal driver education in America is no better. A small number of high schools operate relatively comprehensive programs that require parental involvement. But most have cut back driver ed. classes to the point where they can accommodate only a small portion of students. Even the lucky ones receive only a few hours of behind-the-wheel instruction. Commercial driving schools, even the most competent and conscientious among them, cannot possibly provide complete instruction.
Safe Young Drivers helps to address this enormous problem. It is an indispensable guide for teaching teens to drive. Written by Phil Berardelli, a father and former teacher who understands this often frustrating -- and potentially dangerous -- passage into adulthood, Safe Young Drivers is intended for parents and teens to use together. Each new lesson provides teens with simple instruction and important tips to remember. It also addresses parental issues such as "How do I choose a car for my teen?"
With simple graphics, a complete index, and "Some ABC's for the Road," a mini-encyclopedia for teens, Safe Young Drivers offers a valuable tool for all new drivers and their teachers.
SafeYoungDrivers.com also cares about insurance expenses for families with beginning drivers. We know how difficult it can be to find low-cost insurance for teenagers, but several companies out there offer cheap insurance rates for young drivers who have completed professional instruction and maintain a clean record. These companies understand that having a teenage driver can be expensive, but they will work with parents to help them save money.
