Driver's Education and Safety

People need to be mobile..throughout human history, people have moved from one place to another.  Early civilizations walked primarily or used animals to ride on.  Roads were built for the
people to travel.  As technology increased, the amount of cars on the road increased as well.  Today in the U.S. , with interstate highways, people can move faster in cars than ever before.  Along
with this, the number of driver's has also increased. However, driving is a privilege and REAL responsibility that takes serious care.  
It is hoped that this site, in conjunction with in class activities, will assist students in learning how to Drive specifically for the state of Pennsylvania and the Arts Academy at Benjamin Rush.
