Title: The public health benefits of road safety education for teenagers
Organisation: Road Safety Scotland & Professor Frank McKenna

This 'Think Piece' identifies the extent to which road safety interventions in Scotland (and further afield) aimed at young drivers/pre-drivers, promote responsible attitudes to being a driver which have a lasting influence on driving behaviour.
Professor McKenna identifies the challenges that exist and puts forward possible solutions. This piece provides a reasoned argument which implies that without sound evaluation there is little evidence to suggest that many existing interventions have any lasting effect.
