A new cutting-edge website, http://www.njdrivereducation.com, will provide New Jersey Driver Education instructors with ready-to-use curriculum, videos, and other information that will aid in the instruction of their students.
New Jersey Driver Education was developed by the Brain Injury Association of New Jersey, a non-profit organization that recognizes the important role educators play in teaching new drivers the information and skills they will need on the road.
“Our goal is to provide material on this website that is timely, pertinent, and can be used in the classroom,” said Barbara Geiger-Parker, President and CEO of the Brain Injury Association of New Jersey. “We are also hoping to create an exchange of information so that teachers can share ideas and comments with their peers across the state.”
The website includes lesson plans for several topics including safe driving, distracted driving, road rage, auto insurance, the Graduated Driver License (GDL), seatbelts, and more. Teachers are also encouraged to share their lesson plans and ideas with one another on the website. The site is completely free of charge.
Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death and disability in teens and young adults. While many teens lose their lives on our roadways, many more are living with disabilities, including brain injury, as a result of these crashes.
New Jersey Driver Education is funded through the New Jersey Division of Highway Traffic Safety. This is one of a series of driving safety websites from the New Jersey Division of Highway Traffic Safety and The Brain Injury Association of New Jersey. The others are http://www.UGotBrains.com and http://www.NJteenDriving.com. Protecting our children is everyone's concern. Working together we can keep our teens safe.
The Brain Injury Association of New Jersey is a statewide organization committed to supporting and advocating for individuals affected by brain injury and raising public awareness through education and prevention. A brain injury can happen to anyone at anytime.
