New Teen Driving Bill Extends Ohio Driver’s Ed Cutoff to 21, Stisim Drive Suggests Use of Driving Simulator to Make the Training More Effective and Safer

Ohio proposed a new teen driving bill, a report said. And wanting to also help young drivers stay safe while behind the wheel, Stisim Drive suggested the addition of driving simulator training in driver's education.

Columbus, OH (PRWEB) February 12, 2014

The Ohio House Transportation, Public Safety and Homeland Security Committee was pushing a new bill for teen driving. And according to a report from cleveland.com, it would extend the cutoff for the driver's education to 21-years-old. Responding to it, Stisim Drive recommended the use of driving simulator in the required training stating that it would make it more effective and safe.

Based on the report, which was published on February 11, 2014, the proposed law was given the title House Bill 204. It detailed that just as the current Ohio law, it would require 24 hours of driver's education in a classroom or online and 8 hours of actual driving training before one could get a license.

However, from the present driver's education age cutoff of 18 years old, the report related that the bill would raise it to 21. That, said committee chair Rep. Rex Damschroder, R-Fremont, in the post, would ensure the most at risk drivers would get the proper driving training.

Below is a part of the said report.

"A last-minute amendment to a teen driving bill more than eight months in the works would require all Ohioans under the age of 21 to take a driver's education course before obtaining a license."

"Members of the Ohio House Transportation, Public Safety and Homeland Security Committee voted to send House Bill 204 out of committee and onto the House floor after adopting the amendment without any opposition."

Stisim Drive said that driving education and training is indeed essential for aspiring drivers. In fact, it is important, it stated, even for those who had been behind-the-wheels for years.

Because of that, it expressed its support to Ohio's proposed teen driving bill, even to its extension of age cutoff for the driver's education.

But wanting to help make it more effective and safer, Stisim Drive suggested the incorporation of driving simulation in the training. As it stated, driving simulators could instantly pinpoint the weaknesses of a driver in various road scenes, thus, enabling them to make better decisions during the actual driving.

Moreover, because training with driving simulation systems doesn't require anyone to hit the road, it said that it also makes the process safer. And that, it added, makes practice driving even for the most dangerous road scenes possible, thereby, making drivers capable of overcoming them, in case they happen.

However, of all the driving simulators, Stisim Drive asserted that none beats its own. It said that they had been developed for 25 years to ensure that they meet the clients' need. Moreover, it said that its Stisim Drive software is loaded with realistic simulations and is truly cost-effective. That, it added, makes it a huge help even in rehabilitation and research.
