What: Tire Rack Street Survival® teen safe driving program for drivers ages 15-21
Who: Presented by the SCCA Foundation, a 501(c) (3) public charity, in partnership with Iowa Chapter BMW Club and Des Moines Valley Region SCCA.
Where: Iowa Speedway parking lot, 3333 Rusty Wallace Drive, Newton, IA
Why: The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that approximately 80% of accidents among teenage drivers are caused by driver error. The Street Survival program has been designed to provide teenagers with the skills needed to avoid costly mistakes.
Street Survival takes teens well beyond basic Driver’s Education classes. It teaches them driving techniques on how to avoid accidents before they happen.
With Iowa winters and Iowa country roads, it just makes sense to enroll your teen.
How: Street Survival is a unique hands-on driving experience that puts each student behind the wheel of his or her own car along with a trained instructor. After classroom discussion, students go out on course with their instructors to practice the exercises. The instruction takes place on a closed, wetted-down parking lot, so students experience emergency driving situations in a controlled environment. We teach accident avoidance, skid control, emergency braking, and many other driving skills. Students get to practice maneuvers many times over to gain skills and learn from their own mistakes in this intense one day class.
When: Sunday, Oct 6, 2013, 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Cost: $75 fee – includes in-car training, lunch, and a free family membership provided by the Sports Car Club of America.
