READER INPUT More training urged for new teen drivers

-A +A

I just heard about the tragic accident on Auburn Folsom Road Sunday night. I urge all parents to enroll their newly licensed teenage drivers in Street Survival or similar comprehensive  hands on driver training. The primary emphasis of the Street Survival program is a “hands-on” driving experience in real-world situations. Students use their own car and are taught its handling limits and how to control them.

My older daughter attended the class in Reno about 4 years ago and I am convinced it made her a much safer driver.  Go to http://streetsurvival.org/school-schedule-registration/ to find a location or request a local session.
