#33571 Driver's Education - Dying to Get There: The Real Cost of Reckless Driving (Run time 21 min.) DVD $69.95

New drivers seem to learn very quickly about tickets, suspended licenses, and even a day in court, yet few appear to dwell much on safety. The fact is, traffic accidents are the leading cause of death among teens. This program opens a potentially lifesaving teen-to-teen dialogue on driving-related tragedies involving drivers, passengers, and pedestrians. Strong images of totaled cars, powerful mortality statistics, and firsthand stories of real car wrecks with severe consequences carry the unmistakable message that driving is no joyride.

Written, produced, and hosted by a veteran patrolman, the program explains exactly how to park, behave, and speak when pulled over by a cop. Finding a nearby, well-lit area, staying inside the vehicle, refraining from sudden or alarming movements, keeping a respectful tone, and being aware of an officer's perspective and working conditions-these and other topics are covered along with tips on court procedures, night driving info, and helpful Q&A segments featuring teen drivers.

#8357 Driver's Education - Drugs and Driving: A Deadly Combination (Run time 12 min.) DVD $89.95

Medications including antihistamines, tranquilizers, and sleeping pills-blamed for over 10 percent of all traffic fatalities-are studied for their ability to lower concentration and reduce motor control. The medical profession's responsibility for warning patients of the dangers of taking drugs while driving is discussed. The National Highway Safety Administration is chided for refusing to recognize the problem. The program suggests that while every accident has many causes, the label caution, "Warning: Medication may cause drowsiness," should be taken more seriously by American consumers. (12 minutes)
