  • Abstract:
    Under certain adverse driving conditions, often times the driver of a vehicle has inadequate training or education and ends up taking wrongful action leading to severe crashes. The purpose of this research was to determine the state-of-the-art practices in educating drivers for safety in certain adverse driving conditions and to develop a realistic module of a driver education program addressing that topic. In addition, the research sought to determine whether any relevant laws and regulations related to driving in the State of Arizona need to be changed in order to properly address safety under adverse driving conditions. The study consisted of four main tasks, which included a literature review, statistical analysis of Arizona crash data, a survey of other states regarding their driver education programs, and targeted case studies of selected states and other private or semi-government agencies involved in driver education curriculum development and implementation. It is the recommendation of this report that Arizona continue its on-going efforts to convene a driver education task force consisting of both Arizona Department of Education and Motor Vehicle Department representatives with the goal of developing uniform standards for both driver education curriculum and training for driver education instructors to apply to both the public school driver education program and the professional driver training schools. In addition, because Arizona does not have an existing state-level driver education curriculum, the state should adopt a complete driver education curriculum as opposed to a module geared towards adverse driving conditions. That said, should that effort not be possible, it is the recommendation of this report that one of the two adverse conditions related modules (Montana or Texas/Virginia). Both of these modules are well designed and thorough and both would service Arizona well. They are similar in their coverage of adverse driving conditions. The choice between the two would come down to Arizona's preference between the NIDB model with which the Montana curriculum is more closely aligned, and the ADTSEA model with which the Virginia/Texas module is more closely aligned
