The Driver Education Evaluation Program (DEEP) Study. A Report to the Congress.
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (DOT), Washington, DC.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's (NHTSA) Driver Education Evaluation Program and this initial report to Congress on that program are concerned with the first countermeasure within the driver programing area. Primary concern in this report is to provide the following information: (1) the context within which the driver education effort exists; (2) the case against the young driver as the primary target group for driver education efforts; (3) a brief description of the implementation history of driver education efforts (primarily in the form of high school driver education programs); (4) an assessment of the effectiveness of driver education programs from the standpoint of highway safety; (5) a summary of the primary issues being raised in the driver education area at present; and (6) a review of NHTSA-supported efforts in this area.
