If your teenager is getting ready to get behind the wheel, Triple-A of Iowa has something that might ease your mind and help your child. Triple-A spokeswoman Gail Weinholzer says they’ve developed a D-V-D that helps teens learn more about driving.
Weinholzer says the D-V-D puts teens through a hundred of different scenarios and allows them to start developing skills to anticipate problems before the problems occur. Weinholzer says July and August are the deadliest months of the year for 16 and 17-year-old drivers.
Weinholzer says the highest crash rates and fatalities are for younger drivers — mainly because they don’t have experience. Weinholzer says the D-V-D can help give the young drivers some experience.
Weinholzer says the D-V-D is available for 10 dollars for members and 15 for non-members. She says you can get the D-V-D at any Triple-A office in Iowa. When you purchase a D-V-D, you also become eligible to win an I-Pod. To locate a Triple-A office, surf to www.aaa.com.
