'THE ULTIMATE DRIVING CHALLENGE': A TEST IN DRIVING ABILITY

 ORLANDO, Fla., April 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Florida is one of the leading states in traffic fatalities among teenagers and the elderly, and presents drivers with often hazardous driving conditions, such as rain and traffic congestion. On Friday, April 23 at 9 p.m., all CBS affiliates will telecast "The Ultimate Driving Challenge," a one-hour special sponsored by General Motors. This driving test puts America behind the wheel in a unique test of national driving competence and safety on challenging roadways across the country.
 The special features a mix of celebrity participants, expert drivers, state-of-the-art computer graphics and home viewer participation in a comprehensive multiple-choice test. Craig T. Nelson, star of "Coach", will host the special, joined by Paula Zahn, co-anchor of "CBS This Morning."
 In the U.S. more pre-retirement years of life are lost as a result of traffic crashes than from cancer and heart disease combined. Teenagers and the elderly are among the highest risk groups.
 "The Ultimate Driving Challenge" takes viewers to various locations and presents them with a wide range of driving challenges, from weather to drunk driving.
 For a free booklet on driving safety send a self-addressed envelope to "20 Smart Driving Tips," P.O. Box 8527, Prospect Heights, IL 60070.
