The best way to improve safety starts with the driver. Take it seriously, drive like your life depends on quality driving!

I recommend the LED lighting mods - running lights, turn signals, and headlights. I've added a third brake light to my Healey as well. I figure chances are better if you can see and be seen. One other safety upgrade I've done is a fuel pump inertia switch.

Yea, driver training for teens has degraded since the 80s down to filling a square on a page. IDK about your state but AZ would issue a license to a monkey for $12. The only real form of safety comes from situational awareness and avoidance of that monkey.
