Green Driving from the Start©, starting in 2024, is now Smart Driving from the Start©, a funded presentation under The Clean Transportation Path© project intended for driver education classes.


Smart Driving from the Start presentations place more emphasis in showing student drivers how smart driving practices, such as accelerate and brake smoothly and watching your speed, will yield significant economic benefits in reductions of fuel use, maintenance, and repair costs in gas-powered vehicles - vehicles that still predominate in automotive registrations in the U.S. Also emphasized is how these smart driving practices equate to safer driving. The secondary benefits of smart driving come naturally: reductions in CO2 emissions and energy waste, and mitigation of tailpipe pollution in these vehicles. These presentations still have a segment on low- to zero-emission vehicles to help provide students the basic knowledge of the future of road transportation.
