Car crashes are the leading killer of American teens, often because of simple driving errors.
The BMW Car Club of America Foundation, Tire Rack and Michelin teamed up 20 years ago and founded Tire Rack Street Survival, a safe-driving school. The Illini Chapter of the BMW CCA has offered the class in central Illinois every summer since 2010.
This year will feature sessions 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. June 4 and 5. The class, held in the parking lot of Caterpillar Inc.’s Mossville plant, is open to permitted and licensed drivers ages 15 to 21. The cost is $95 per student, and graduates receive a certificate recognized for discounts by some insurance companies.
