Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'Overall this text is an excellent learning tool...The presentation of the concepts was well formatted and easy to follow

The descriptive graphics were eye appealing...The 'Who's at Fault' element requires student participation, thereby providing the feedback to the instructor to ascertain if the pupil(s) understand the topic of the chapter.'

'The special elements are great. These keep the reader interested and informed of driving-related items. A must-keep feature!

'I find chapter content to be up-to-date and theoretically sound and one reason we chose it as our text was its smooth flow from topic to topic.'
