A Driver’s License Doesn’t Prove Competency

It is a common misconception that once teens pass their driver’s license test they have proven they can drive safely.  After all, that's what the test is about right?  Well, no, not even close.  The role of the DMVs, Department of Motor Vehicles, around the country is more about passing the minimum bar, and I mean the minimum amount of knowledge and competency to get your license.  In most states, teens know beforehand the route they will taking during their test.  And many intentionally avoid left hand turns. Really?  If the inspectors thought the teen was safe to drive why avoid left hand turns? Or rain? Or night?  Web-based driver training companies are trying to make it as EASY as possible to get your license. On YouTube you can look up many of the DMV tests state by state and they have all the questions and the answers clearly laid out on video assuring the teens only need to repeat the answers they know are required. Why make it so easy to go out and do the most dangerous thing they'll ever do?  While it might make a parent feel better that their teen has a license - please, please don't consider them fully capable of driving safely!

How Do We Teach Driving Skills to Underprivileged Kids?

Learning to drive is a skill that requires training. . . lots of training.  And many kids are not able to get behind the wheel of a car to learn much less practice hazard avoidance techniques.  Moreover, driving is necessary – by most people - to get to/from work every day.  While most of us take it for granted, it’s a life skill that is needed by all. Job Corps is a federally-funded program administered by the United States Department of Labor that offers free-of-charge education and vocational training to young men and women ages 16 to 24.  By providing academic and career skills training, they are able to prepare students for success in every aspect of their lives.   In fact, 80% of Job Corps graduates enter the workforce, join the military, or go on to higher education or an apprenticeship after graduation.  Job Corps are committed to providing their students with ‘success that lasts a lifetime’ – and it is nowhere more evident than in the San Diego Job Corps center. Realizing the importance of driver education, San Diego Job Corps purchased VDI’s three-screen full cab simulator (LX3) with the latest Virtual Driving Essentials driver training program.  They used VDI’s GSA contract (GS-02F-0122W) and they were able to easily purchase what they needed as well as achieve the most cost effective price.  By adding simulation to their existing classroom and behind-the-wheel curriculum, they are now able to successfully train a large volume of students to get their driver’s license and attain a higher level of employability.
"Job Corps students from all walks of life have benefited from the safe, inclusive and real life driving situations that Virtual Driver Interactive provides," said Bonita V. Mason - Drivers Ed. Specialist at San Diego Job Corps. "Students are ready to face behind the wheel in real time once they complete the required lessons.  Safety, reaction times, road conditions, traffic and unpredictable occurrences are all addressed in comfortable, controlled and safe settings.  Virtual Driver Interactive allows each of our students to apply that knowledge and have more confident experiences once they are ready for the road."

Distracted Driving or Walking– Who is to Blame for the Spike in Pedestrian Fatalities?

Last week the Governors Highway Safety Association released a report stating that 2017 pedestrian fatalities were at a 25-year high.  What’s notable is that in recent years, the number of pedestrian fatalities has increased 28% while during the same time period other traffic deaths decreased.  Speculation for this alarming pedestrian death toll is linked to the growth in Smartphones nationwide.

Cellphone use among walkers and drivers is on the rise and so are the safety issues related to distracted walking.  We are all well aware of the deadly consequences of distracted driving.  But distracted walking?  Distracted PedestrianDrivers need to be prepared, now more than ever, for the distracted pedestrian who is oblivious to traffic around them creating hazards in their path.  Typing (texting) or reading a text alters a pedestrian's gait, speed, and walking pattern, according to a recent study.  Campaigns such as the The "Digital Deadwalkers" YouTube video distributed in 2016 humorously highlights what can happen when pedestrians focus on anything other than the task of walking.

If drivers are texting and pedestrians have their head down and are unaware of their surroundings, no wonder the rate of fatalities is on the rise.  Driver education needs to train on hazard avoidance with distracted pedestrians as a top contender on the hazard list. Virtual Driving Essentials

Virtual Driving Essentials is VDI’s teen driving program that includes training on complex driving situations such as intersections where most pedestrian injuries occur.  We train teen drivers about the consequences of driving or walking while distracted in a virtual world – which has proven to change their behavior.  There is no substitute for the shocking experience of feeling like you’ve accidently harmed another person.
