Photo by Laurel Hungerford Photography Department of Motor Vehicles ha gone "YouTube" In a continuing effort to bring jaew driver safety tools to teens, the California Department of Motor Vehicles. has created a DMV channel on the popular video sharing Web site Drivers, especially young people, can find useful and enlightening video clips that will help hone their driving skills right from their desk- tops. '~Traffic safety, is our top priority and with the YouTube videos, we hope to catch the attention of each and every teen driver as welI as seasoned drivers in California," said DMV Director George Valverde. "Y.ouTube gets millions of visitors each day and the DMV saw this as an excellent tool to reach out to the mass- es. Each video clip teaches a very important aspect of driving." Getting your license for the first time can be a nerve- wracking, scary experience. DMV takes some of the mys- tery away as the viewer actu- ally goes along on a "drive test." The examiner explains the process of the test and reasons why people fail. Video clips of "The Top 10 Reasons for Failing the Drive Test" include unsafe lane changes, failure to yield, fail- ure to stop and lack of experi- ence. The clips go on to show viewers how to overcome these obstacles and pass the test. The drive test isn't the only subject viewers can expect. A click of the mouse can take you inside a big rig to see what a tr cker sees. Not only do the clips show drivers how to share the road with big rigs, but also motorcycles, bicyclists and pedestrians There are 54 short video clips on the DMV YouTube Channel that range from one to five minutes with new drivers in mind; however, even the most experienced driver can get a refresher course by viewing these well- produced mini movies. These clips complement the California Drivers Handbook and bring the written infor- mation in the handbook alive. To go along with the theme of getting the attention of California teenagers, DMV has also put up a page on MySpace is especially pop- ular with teens and the DMV MySpace "page gives direct links to the official DMV Web site teen section.
