Did you know that car crashes are the leading cause of death in the United States? In 2015, more than 35,000 people died in traffic crashes, a more than 7% increase over 2014.

At the conclusion of the webinar, attendees will be able to:

 

      Access the Driving-Tests.org website and Library Partnership Program
