Survey reveals bad driving habits of young people

The results of a survey sponsored by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety could make Colorado parents reluctant to hand the keys to younger drivers. Responses from people 19 to 24 showed that 88 percent of them admitted to engaging in at least one type risky behavior behind the wheel during the previous 30 days.

FMCSA rule is delayed

Colorado residents who work in the trucking industry should be aware that the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration published a notice on February 1, 2017, that officially implemented a delay of their new rule's effective date. It sets national standards for truck driver training. The Minimum Training Requirements for Entry-Level Commercial Vehicle Operators rule was scheduled to become effective on February 6, 2017, after the Federal Register published it on December 8, 2016.

According to AAA Foundation, nearly 80 percent of drivers experience road rage or significant anger behind the wheel. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration considers several types of behavior to be road rage, in particular when a vehicle operator commits traffic offenses that can put people or property in danger, or when a driver or passenger uses a car or other vehicle as a weapon against other vehicles on the road. Road rage is considered a criminal offense, as opposed to aggressive driving, which is a simple traffic offense.
