A parent wouldn’t hand off the keys to a brand-new sports car to their teenager on his or her sixteenth birthday, turn them loose on the road, and just hope for the best. That would prove to be a safety risk of epic proportions to the driver, passengers, other drivers, pedestrians, as well as, to the vehicle and surrounding property.   Of course, a parent would have made certain that their child had completed the necessary education and training requirements to become a licensed driver first.
