Street Survival program aims to prepare teen drivers in Stratford
Teens learned tips for safer driving habits in Stratford Saturday afternoon.
For the past four years, Keith Scala, the president and owner of SCM Insurance, has put on a one-day safety program called "Tire Rack Street Survival" off South Main Street in Stratford.
About 25 teens participated in the program, which is meant to prepare them for real-life scenarios behind the wheel.
Scala says he wants to prevent teens from becoming a statistic: automobile accidents are the leading killer among in their age group, studies show.
