If you fail the driving test more than once, that's when more training should be required. My one friend failed three times. Every
time I get into the car with him driving (the few times I have let him drive), I've had to scream at him; he scares the living shit out of me. My other friends all say the same thing.
It's not that he drives fast, it's that he has no idea what's going on around him and that he still, after five or six years of driving, doesn't really know what he's doing.

This semester I did a report on texting and driving for college, and texting while driving is more dangerous than driving with a BAC level way over the legal limit.
Every two years, people should have to retake the driving test. Pilots need to do a Biennial Flight Review every two years; mine's due at the end of next month. Considering the number of people who are killed or injured in/by cars, it needs to be done with driving.
With the BFR, unless you're completely incompetent, you'll pass it. Its purpose is more to make you realize you're deficient in certain areas and that you need more training. Cagers have become so complacent that they don't even know they're doing anything wrong. In 1981, a survey was conducted where 93% of these assholes
thought they were above-average drivers. What do you think it would be now with the whole "me-first" attitude, even with cell phones?
