Goodyear Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) has published a Road Safety White Paper titled “Driving Safety First: Improving Road Safety for Novice Drivers”. It was written in collaboration with the European Driving Schools Association (EFA). This paper was presented last November at a round table of the European Transport Safety Council, based in Brussels.
It is the fourth consecutive edition of this study that lifts the veil on driving instructors’ knowledge and skills about road safety all over Europe (including Russia, Turkey and South Africa). It aims to raise awareness about road safety for instructors and young drivers. It is also a tool for decision makers in the automotive industry throughout the world, as well as government authorities in charge of this matter.
This survey highlights both the critical role that parents play in the development of young peoples’ driving habits and the huge differences between countries and their driver training methods.
