City Council Member: The new law requiring all new drivers to take a drivers' education course is a good one, because studies have shown that new drivers who complete drivers' education courses are much less likely to get into accidents
. However, passing this law doesn't mean that we should repeal our city's existing law requiring new drivers to hang a "New Driver" sign from their back window. Our city's drivers will start assuming that all drivers are safe drivers because of the courses, and they won't be extra careful when driving around new drivers. But despite the improvement in their driving due to the courses, new drivers are still much more likely to cause accidents than are experienced drivers, and the drivers around them need to be extra wary in order to avoid accidents, so removing the signs will lead to more accidents.
