Tire Rack Announces National Program Schedule for Teen Drivers

Tire Rack Street SurvivalTire Rack Street Survival teen-driving program has added to its nationwide schedule as the “100 deadliest days” for teen drivers is in full swing.

According to the Fatality Analysis Reporting System, during summer months June through August from 2008-2012, an average of six teens were killed a day in car accidents. To combat those numbers, the Tire Rack Street Survival program aims to save lives by educating young drivers on the basics and beyond of car control, the organization said.

With the support of Michelin North America, Tire Rack Street Survival has scheduled 33 additional courses during the summer months. For the full schedule list by state and city, visit streetsurvival.org/school-schedule.php.

“Our goal is to provide advanced education across the country and reach as many teens as possible to make the roads safer for everyone,” said Bill Wade, national program manager of Tire Rack Street Survival. “Michelin’s continued support of the program is invaluable and their product and brand safety initiatives line up with our goals as an organization.”

In addition, Michelin will be hosting a school at Laurens Proving Grounds, the Tire Rack’s on-vehicle test facility in South Carolina, on June 7.

“Nothing beats experience when it comes to driving and we’re applauding Michelin for joining our efforts to bring Tire Rack Street Survival to even more communities to reduce the number of these senseless tragedies,” said Matt Edmonds, vice president of Tire Rack.

The Tire Rack Street Survival program hosted more than 100 programs last year in the U.S. Classes are conducted by local members of the BMW Car Club of America, Sports Car Club of America, Porsche Club of America, Audi Club of North America and other car clubs. Tire Rack Street Survival is open to all licensed or permit drivers ages 15-21.
