The project determines attitudes, knowledge, beliefs, and behaviors of Kansas teens and their parents when learning to drive. About 1,000 Kansas parents and 832 teens were interviewed betweeen November 2007 and January, 2008. The results of the interviews with the teens will be released Tuesday. The results from interviews with parents were released earlier this year.
