Are You A Safe Driver?
Studies have shown that most experienced drivers never received safe-driving instruction; they got in a car and started to drive. Other drivers knew quite a bit about safe driving at one time, but have since forgotten. Still others have not kept up with the changes in highways, automobiles, traffic signs or the "rules of the road".

When it comes to actual driving, however, some studies show experienced drivers have fewer collisions than new drivers. Long-time drivers can generally handle a car better than new drivers, steering clear of trouble or getting out of a tight situation with confidence.
