Street Skills is a driver’s education series designed to help teenagers become safer, more responsible drivers. Interviews with experts and computer animation get beyond the basics to explore the mechanics, physics, psychology, and biology of driving. Interviews with police officers, accident victims, and other authorities show how careless driving can lead to serious trouble. A new Street Skills “extra” will be added to the series in March 2010 to help teens understand why texting, Twittering and talking on the cell phone can be dangerous distractions.
