Atlanta Drivers: Do Shock Tactics Work In Driver’s Education Courses?

If you have kids, then you know, that one day they will be driving and hopefully it’s a Southtowne Motors car. They’ll, no doubt, be attending a driver’s education course. Now, driver’s ed has changed drastically in the past 60 years. There has been more of a shift from shock education…remember all of those horrific videos they’d show to kids about the dangers of driving. Check out the one I found from the 50’s below.

These days, driver’s education is more real world and scenario driven, as opposed to the shock and awe of past driving classroom videos. Which do you think is a better technique? Does the shock really deter kids from abusing their driving privilege? Does focusing on real world scenarios seem to achieve better results, or does it neglect the inherent dangers and responsibilities of driving? What will a driver’s ed course look like in 50 more years? Or, will we be taking flying ed courses to be able to drive our new Atlanta cars? Southtowne General Flying Motors Superstore has a nice ring to it.
