RECKLESS AGGRESSIVE DRIVER EDUCATION

THE RECKLESS AGGRESSIVE DRIVER EDUCATION HISTORY

The Reckless/Aggressive Driver Education Program (RADEP) began in 1997 in the Richmond area. RADEP provides the courts an additional or supplemental tool in the disposition of traffic cases in which the defendant has shown reckless/aggressive driving behavior. Referrals are now being accepted from all courts in the Fredericksburg Area.

This program is for those who have engaged in acts of reckless driving such as following too closely, failing to yield, improper lane changing, improper passing, disobeying signs and signals, and speeding, especially in relation to road and traffic conditions. These behaviors may lead to crashes, collisions (especially at intersections) and “road rage”.

In May 2002, the Commission on VASAP approved and adopted the RADEP curriculum for use statewide.

RADEP is now available through the local ASAP’s under the support and authority of the Commission on VASAP and the general authority of the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles.

THE RECKLESS AGGRESSIVE DRIVER EDUCATION OUTLINE

The RADEP is a 12-hour program offered for persons charged with non-alcohol related reckless and/or aggressive driving offenses. The program is presented in one 8-hour session and one 4-hour session.

SEGMENT ONE

BASIC DRIVER IMPROVEMENT SESSION:

This 8-hour segment is based on DMV approved VASAP Driver Improvement Curriculum. Successful completion of the 8-hour session is a prerequisite to participate in the 4-hour Reckless Aggressive session.

SEGMENT TWO

RECKLESS AGGRESSIVE SESSION:

This 4-hour segment addresses the many causes of reckless/aggressive driving and teaches methods to avoid situations which encourage dangerous driving behavior.
