Motor vehicle crashes in the US currently take over 40,000
lives every year. The total economic impact is over $150 billion
a year. 77-90% of crashes are caused by driver error.
These numbers suggest that more driver training and practice to anticipate
varying driving conditions will save lives.
By combining driver education with entertainment elements, Drive Square promotes better training, which is based on its patented Portable Road Simulator. Drive Square works with leaders in driver training, research, insurance and government to make this technology available for driver training.
