Eagle County teens can learn to drive safely

Daily Staff ReportVail, CO Colorado

EDWARDS, Colorado A program in which teens can learn to drive safely in a variety of weather and road conditions is coming to Eagle on April 26. Tire Rack Street Survival Program, sponsored by the Edwards Rotary Club, takes place April 26 at the Vail Valley Jet Center. It is open to students age 16 to 21 and costs $60, though half the fee will be refunded when the class is completed. The leading cause of death among 13-19 year olds in the U.S. is from a motor vehicle crash, says Linda Hill, President of Hill & Company and co-founder of the program. We need to give our kids the tools they need to understand how to drive safely, especially in our community. Students will use their own cars in the program. They will face challenges such as wet roads, distractions and a slalom course. Students who are interested in enrolling can go to: http://www.streetsurvival.org/school-schedule.php and click on Eagle County Regional Airport link for details and forms to complete. Adults interested in training to become instructors can contact Linda Hill at Linda@hillncompany.com or Joe Hoy at joseph.hoy@eaglecounty.us.
