  • Driver Education Reduces Crashes and Saves Lives
    Motor vehicle crashes are the no.1 cause of death for 15- to 20-year-olds.  Teens who take formal driver training in Oregon have much lower crash rates.  Yet, only about one third of eligible Oregonians sign up for driving classes, saying they don't have the time, money, or easy access to them.  Teens who took an ODOT-approved driver education course have had fewer crashes, traffic convictions and suspensions.
