FAUX DRIVING: Free driving simulator program may help pre-licensed drivers learn good habits

That moment is often filled with trepidation, but a new program at the University at Buffalo has been created to make teens safer on the road.
Kevin F. Hulme, PhD, runs the motion-simulation lab at the university’s north campus, and he’s looking for students to sign up for his driver training program, which provides a free simulated driving experience to pre-licensed drivers.
