Albany-- A new survey shows teen crashes not only cost lives, but they cost Americans billions of dollars a year.
A driver's education course at Darton College is helping to change that. A survey by by Triple-A found that crashes have an annual cost to society of $164 billion. Of that, more than $34-billion come from crashes involving drivers between the ages of 15 and 17.
To meet Joshua's Law regulations, Darton College offers a Driver's Education Course. So far they've graduated 70 teens and say it's making a difference.
"You actually see a transition and how familiar and comfortable they are behind the wheel through the entire portion of the class where when they do take our final quiz which they have to make a 70 on, you can just see a big difference," said Continuing Education Trainer Stephanie Drawdy.
The course consists of 30-hours classroom instruction and 6-hours behind the wheel. Vehicles for the behind the wheel training were donated by Bill Chambers Motors and the DOCO Regional Federal Credit Union.
The next class will be offered the week of June 9th. For more information, call 229-317-6730 or 6726.
