If anyone wants to find out who the mysterious "national" is, there is a very simple way to find out what you need to know.
Call the National Office at: 972-580-2000 and explain your question to the secretary that answers. She (or he) will then transfer you to the Professional who can answer your question.
Every time I have called, I have left a message for the professional, as I call around 12:00 their time, and _always_ recieve a call back in 20-45 min. When the return call is recieved, they are always very helpful,
and have prepared the information I need. I never spend more than $.50 for a call, and always get the information I was looking for.
I for one am satisfied with National, and understand where the polcies come from. In the issue with 16 year old drivers, I have always felt safer with a 16 year old driver than my 21 year old roommate in a car. The 16 year olds know they
are under scrutiny and seem to follow the laws to the letter.
