Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death among American youths aged 16 to 19, killing 5000 teens last year.
To reduce this number, SCCA has partnered with the BMW Car Club of America Foundation in the 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 goals of the Tire Rack Street Survival program are to teach students some of the basics of car control, to enhance their enjoyment of driving and to improve their competence as drivers. We want the students to understand how their actions govern a car’s responses, and as a result to become safer, more effective drivers on the road.
Students spend a day with SCCA's seasoned competitors, finding out what their car can do in emergency situations and learning the skills it takes to avoid those situations before they develop. Almost without fail, teens who have to be dragged to a Street Survival event have a huge smile on their face at the end of the day.
