Seeking Comment on Proposed Changes to WV Driver's Ed Policy

The state Board of Education is seeking comment on proposed updates to driver's education instruction standards.

Board members voted Wednesday to place the policy revisions up for public comment for 30 days.

Driver's education instructors say growing use of cell phones, GPS and other technologies has made distracted driving an issue.

The board also cites U.S. Department of Transportation statistics that show distracted driving will soon surpass drunken driving as the major cause of car crashes among teenagers.
