Do you ever question the training handed out these days in Driver’s Education, and wonder what that means for your children, or the children of your friends, or even who trained those around you when you drive down the road?
The fact of the matter is, it’s scary out there. That’s why the SCCA has joined Tire Rack and the BMWCCA, along with others, to offer Tire Rack Street Survival.
Last year, over 5,000 teenagers died in motor vehicle crashes, the leading killer of American youths aged 16 to 19, accounting for more than 40 percent of fatalities in that age bracket. To reduce this number comes Tire Rack Street Survival, a non-profit, national driver education program aimed at teaching teens the skills they need to stay alive behind the wheel.
The Tire Rack Street Survival school is a safe teen driving program, designed to go beyond today's required driver education and give teens across the U.S. the driving tools and hands-on experience they need to become safer, smarter drivers. The school provides trained and qualified in-car driving instructors as well as valuable classroom experience for each student, at a cost of only $75 per student.
But the program doesn’t happen alone. The saying “it takes a village to raise a child” is especially true in this case.
