Driver's Ed Makes You MORE Likely To Crash?

That's what the Indiana BMV says. Teens who have taken Driver's Ed classes are 4X more likely to get in crashes than those who did not take the classes. Some lawmakers say it might be time for an overhaul. Indiana's drivers ed program has not changed in the past 30 years.
I think they need to study a) older drivers (lots of factors involved in teen driving and crashes) and b) drivers in other states (there may be something wrong with the way driver's ed is taught in Indiana)
If you have a teenaged driver, here's a link to site with all sorts of useful info!
