The BMW Car Club of the Quad Cities will once again offer a one day "Street Survival" driving class for area teens.  The class will be held on Sunday October 5, 2014 in the parking lot of Bettendorf High School.  Subject to certain driving experiences and class openings, this course will even accept teens who are still on an Instruction Permit.

To learn more go to streetsurvival.org and follow the links for Registration/School Schedule.

It is a fact that you do NOT have to send your teen driver (son/daughter/grandchild) to this course.  You can allow them to learn what happens when they exceed the physical limits of their vehicle and their ability to handle it in all manner of adverse situations "by accident".  Hopefully they will survive the crash, and learn something from it.  If you would rather them learn the physics of a vehicle in motion, limitations of their vehicle, and the limits of their driving ability, without wrecking your car and possibly injuring or killing themselves or someone else, then this course is what you MUST send them to.

National statistics show that over 80% of newly licensed teen drivers will be in a vehicle crash within the first 24 months of getting their drivers license.  If you want to lower those odds, then you MUST send them to streetsurvival.org  .

Remember, you have a choice to let them learn it by accident, or learn it on a closed course with an experienced driving coach in the vehicle with them, and where the only thing to hit is a bunch of orange traffic cones, but they WILL learn it one place or the other.  You decide where.

I apologize if this sounds "preachy", but I assure you that you will not hear about this class in the receiving line at a teens funeral visitation after they are killed in what is always an avoidable crash.

Check out the new poll at the top of this thread.  Has anyone from Clinton or Whiteside counties enrolled their teen in this driving course?
