Avoiding Road Crashes Made Possible through Teen Driving Education Program

Different statistics have shown that drivers who are aged 16-19 are more often involved in traffic accidents compared to other drivers in older age groups. They also have the highest number of traffic violation citations including speeding, tailgating, and failure to yield the right-of-way.

To address these problems, a driving education program was scheduled to teach teen drivers the proper skills that are needed just to stay alive while traveling along dangerous roads.

According to reports, the Tire Rack Street Survival driver education program will be held at the Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego this coming March 28. It will enhance a driver’s competence by providing him with “hands-on experiences” in different actual driving situations.

Participants are required to drive their own vehicles so that they can directly apply the skills they will learn to their own driving experiences, said reports.

Licensed and permitted drivers who are aged 16-21 are encouraged to participate in this program, which only costs around $75 per participant.
