So do we spend resources helping young men and women to remove one of the many risks that driving involves or do we educate them to the TRUTH.

The TRUTH is that driving is only "safe" under very narrow circumstances. If it were safe, there wouldn't be almost 40,000 fatal traffic accidents every year in the US.

Teaching safe driving is ridiculous. There is no such thing.
That's actually ALL very literally true. Maybe you were trying to draw some contrast with it, but I don't see it. Driving isn't safe. We only do it because we think the benefits outweigh the detriments.
