This essay is based off a memory I had back when I took my first DMV written test for my permit. After making some connections between the reckless behavior of some drivers and how some people try to cheat on DMV tests, it led me to believe that several people take driver's education classes just to get them out of the way in order to be granted the privilege to drive. It seems to me that these people are missing the point on what makes driver's education significant in the first place. I feel that because driver's education is often associated with those learning to drive, there needs to be a new perspective that can apply to all drivers regardless of the level of experience.

I have experienced dangerous driving. I'm sure everyone has. There are several types of dangerous drivers including new drivers, reckless drivers, distracted drivers and drunk drivers. Drivers education can solve most of these. Legislation for bars and for driving distractions can solve the other problems. Legislating mandatory periodic refresher drivers education, for example, would improve everyone's skills. These things could go a long way in reducing crashes and fatalities.
