*************CONTEST IS CLOSED*************
I grew up in a small town in Ontario, 45 minutes North of Toronto. Anywhere we wanted to go we had to drive, this had my Mum & Dad ferrying us here, there and everywhere non-stop. For my friends and I the day we turned 16 was like a dream, we all dreamed of being able to drive to the stores together and not be embarrassed by our parents.
Driving = freedom in small town Ontario in those days before transit systems.
From Young Drivers of Canada:
“Learning to drive is a major milestone in anyone’s life, regardless of the age you are learning to drive. Learning the right skills will prepare you for the road ahead and practicing defensive driving techniques from an annually re-certified YD Instructor is key. When you are on the road and an emergency situation arises. Comprehensive driver training prepares drivers with a strong foundation of in-class knowledge and hands-on in-vehicle experience.
The leading cause of death for those between the ages of 16 and 24 is traffic collisions. There is no doubt that the combination of experience, driving environment and cognitive limitations places each driver at risk. Driver training prepares you for the road ahead. People need to realize we are a community of drivers and we will all be sharing the road together. Lets train our new drivers right, right from the start.”
. Do you have a child who is approaching the age of 16? Or are you perhaps on the journey to getting your driving licence?
