Tire Rack Street Survival

In addition to our High Performance Driver Education program, the Niagara Region PCA is also concerned with the safety of teen drivers. This article from US Insurance Agents discusses and makes suggestions regarding Common Risks Faced by Teen Drivers. Teen crashes and teen-driving fatalities are entirely too common. Tire Rack Street Survival Teen Driver Safety Program is a course that we know helps significantly reduce these tragic accidents. Niagara provides instructors and volunteers for the Genesee Valley Chapter BMW CCA Street Survival program.
