Ohio unveils new virtual driving program for new drivers

It’s a virtual driving assessment system, kind of like a video game, but has gas and brake pedals, a steering wheel and puts drivers in real-life scenarios.

In 2018, 136 drivers ages 16 to 25 were killed in traffic crashes statewide. More than 17,000 young drivers were injured. It’s an issue the Governor says needs to be addressed aggressively. “Motor vehicle crashes are among one of the leading causes of death for those between the ages of 16 and 25 in Ohio.”
