Research has shown that ignorance of traffic laws accounts for only a small percentage of traffic problems. In fact, about 90% of traffic accidents are a result of improper decisions, uncontrolled emotions and the bad habits of drivers. For this reason, the curriculum helps drivers examine the relationship that attitudes have on behavior and helps them develop a personal awareness of the effect that their emotional state has on their driving behavior.

The Youth Traffic Safety workbook is available in English.
