Road Aware® helps teens anticipate hazards before they get behind the wheel.
Teens usually have better reaction times than older adults – so why do teens crash at least four times as often as other drivers? One reason is that teens haven’t learned what to look for while driving … Driving is more than just reacting. Driving requires learning from your experience so that you can better anticipate hazards.
Based on state-of-the-art computer simulator research at the University of Massachusetts - Amherst, Road Aware® is a web-based training program that simulates hazards in the driving environment. Road Aware® provides teens with experience in recognizing and anticipating common driving hazards that they might not otherwise see. And it allows teens to make mistakes and learn from them without putting them or anyone else on the road at risk.
