1 New Jersey Traffic Safety Learning Progression Component Grade 10 Driver Education Unit November 2010

2 Background (Oregon DHS, CDC 2010) Developmental Background: Teens have already reached 95% of their adult height (Oregon DHS, 2010.) Their thought process enables them to concentrate under stress and cause-effect relationships are better understood than with young teens. This age group is very self-absorbed and often encounters conflicts with family members due to the emerging need for independence. Injury Prevention Strategies: Adolescents are affected by serious health and safety issues including motor vehicle crashes, violence, substance use, and unsafe sex. They struggle with adopting behaviors that could decrease their risk of developing chronic diseases in adulthood (Centers for Disease Controls and Prevention, 2010).

Summarize New Jersey motor vehicle laws and regulations and determine their impact on health and safety (e.g. organ/tissue donation, seatbelt use, and the use of hand-held devices Standard 2.1 Wellness: All students will acquire health promotion concepts and skills to support a healthy, active lifestyle - Safety Strand Benchmarks

11 Supplemental Lesson Plan Directions: Chapter 3 Driver Test Review Passenger and Driver Safety 1.Describe the 10 areas of car condition safety. 2.Identify the NJ seat belt law and tips for safe seat belt use. 3.Describe child restraint law (8yr/80 lb). 4.Recall the types of airbags, exceptions to use and how they are used safely used with child passengers? 5.Car Condition: Review the ten things to check prior to driving. 6.Starting: Explain how to start a parked car safely. What is good driving posture and steering (hand position and hand over hand steering)? What are the driving “blind spots” and how can they be accommodated? 7.Peer Review: Name all parts of starting checklist and practice posture, hand positioning and steering procedures.

12 Supplemental Lesson Plan Rules of the Road 1.Stopping Distance: What are the stopping distances for 30 mph, 50 mph and 70 mph? 2.Speed Control: Describe how to control speed and safely accelerate and decelerate. Describe the proper braking procedure for both regular and ABS brakes. 3.Review Safety Technologies: Explain how seat belts, air bags, and ABS brakes keep passengers and drivers safe. Also, describe the importance of good driver decision making over too much reliance on these types of technologies. 4.Driving Signals, Reversing: Demonstrate driving signals by hand. Explain reversing, limited rear vision, and how to reverse and see safely. 5.Turning: Explain how to execute a 3 point turn (K Turn) and how to parallel park. What sort of problems may occur in executing K turns and parallel parking, and how they can be avoided. Describe angle parking.

13 Supplemental Lesson Plan 8.Red Light/Green Light Activity. Place a variety of spot markers on the floor, mostly green with a few red dispersed. Students are to walk around the course, stopping for 3 seconds on the red spot markers. First time, everyone is on their own. Second time through, have students walk in pairs with hands on shoulders of person in front and eyes focused on their back. Progress to a group with up to 4-5 people. As students go from one to two to more than two, they will bump into each other. After the activity, discuss safe breaking distances and relate it to safe driving distances from the driver in front, as well as what to pay attention to when driving (driver behavior, traffic lights, potential crash points such as children running out into street.) 9.Peer Review/Poster: Have students create a poster based on one of the areas of safe driving/rules of the road (example, blind spots), as a public service poster for the school.
