CAR, BOAT OR SNOWMACHINE, driving is a reponsibility, a privilege, a rite of passage, a danger and a freedom at any age! Next time on KTD we're looking at all the facets of what it means to be young with a license to drive in Alaska. We're joined by a retired-educator-turned-driving-instructor, and the deputy commander of the Alaska Highway Patrol to look at safety issues, driver's ed, licensing, preventing drunk driving and why modern teens aren't getting their licenses as early as teens of yore (hint: studies stay it's because of texting and Facebook).
PLUS, beaters or brand new - adults remember their first cars; teens tell us if they'd rather use a car or a computer to connect with friends; we'll meet the parents of a young man who died in a drunk driving accident; and wonder why you're getting carded when you're obviously old enough? It's the controversial new "red stripe law" and we've got details.
