The cars have changed an awful lot, the roads have changed and the drivers that use them have most certainly changed, not always for the better. The technology that we have in our pockets and in the cars that we drive have changed so much too.
Its good to know that even with all these 'advancements' some things are still as great to use today as they were back in the day. My little 'Dinky' tuition car has served me well for almost all of my teaching career and is still in my car glovebox today ready to show my learners which way to steer to achieve that perfect parallel park. And the 'illustrator' model that I bought back in 1990 is there as a back up to talk people through the mechanics of parking as well. A picture may speak a thousand words but my little toy car steering successfully into a pretend space still brings a smile to my customers faces even today.
It's all part of the modern learning experience, helped along it's way with a little bit of nostalgia and a toy car to make my learners safer drivers. You're never too old for toys!
