A scientific study conducted by BSR and published in 2008 found that our training has a profound impact on accident statistics.
The study period is concurrent with the period young drivers are most likely to get into an accident – the first five years of licensed operation. Accident data were kept through five years and not recorded thereafter. No consideration has been given to driver’s attitude, peer group pressure, or other psychological factors. The 469 Trained and Control Group students form the sample group in Figure One. Through cooperation from West Virginia’s Governor’s staff, State Troopers’ headquarters, and State Sheriff’s Association, spearheaded by Jefferson County Sheriff Ed Boober, BSR has acquired crash reports of both groups.
This study was conducted with teenagers. However this class has been equally beneficial to adults as well. Sometimes the class has more adult students than teenagers.
