Afghan military recruits get driver's ed

UPI News Service, 08/27/2010 

Trainers at an Afghan training facility said they are focusing on road education because more than half of Afghan army injuries come from road accidents.

U.S. Army Lt. Gen. William Caldwell IV, commander of the NATO-run Kabul Military Training Center, said 141 Afghan soldiers and recruits have died in rollovers and collisions since 2005 and many of the incidents could have been avoided by following the rules of the road, the Los Angeles Times reported Friday.

"We're losing them faster from vehicle accidents than combat," Caldwell said.

He said the center now employs 10 instructors to provide 191 hours of classroom and on-the-road training for recruits to help them learn road safety and proper operation of the more than 8,000-pound Humvees supplied by U.S. forces.
