Description

Dateline reporters took a look at a variety of traffic schools and investigated how many states can not rely on these schools to educate drivers. "At one school in New York City, we saw students falling asleep, looking at magazines and leaving during class. Instead of an instructor showing up to teach and engage the students in discussion, all the students did was watch a videotape. The class, which was supposed to be a state mandated 6 hours, in fact lasted for only an hour and a half. Despite this, everyone in attendance still received traffic school completion certificates." Dateline "raised the issue that the driver training system in this country needs to be re-examined and possibly reformed by state authorities."
