Drivers Ed Book Cover

Available Fall 2014

I firmly believe the objective of this book is to teach new and inexperienced teenage drivers how to develop safer driving habits, by challenging their ability to think and act responsibly while behind the wheel of an automobile. Mayor A. George Pradel

Illinois high schools will be supplementing their driver education materials this fall with the addition of a new book to their curriculum titled "What Teenage Drivers Don't Know, The Unwritten Rules of the Road, A Guide for Student Drivers and Their Parents".

Naperville high school driver education instructors will be adding refreshing new information as they begin their fall classes teaching the Unwritten Rules of the Road. When asked what those rules are, co-author Harmata explains, "Those which can only be learned from decades of driving experience".

Along with Paul Zientarski, the two authors believe they have created a book that will not replace, but enhance current driver education material. So impressed by the books content, Naperville Mayor George Pradel and City Prosecutor Michael DiSanto have consulted with Harmata and Zientarski to make it even better.
