Drive Safe

Drive safe DVD cover

Drive Safe!®: Keeping Pedestrians Safe When You’re Behind the Wheel is an English language instructional video designed to teach pedestrian safety concepts to students in driver education classes or other instructional venues where pedestrian safety issues can be integrated into the curriculum.

There are two versions of the video. One version is for teenage students and contains examples and images more likely to resonate with teenage drivers. The other version is for adult learners, including those who are non-native English speakers

Each video has six sections. While each section is self-contained and it is not necessary to show all six sections at one time, it is recommended that the instructor show the sections in numerical order, since the content of each section often builds on safety concepts taught in one or more of the previous sections.
