TireRack Street Survival

On Saturday, August 19, Cincinnati Region SCCA partnering with the City of Oxford and Miami University to hosted the TireRack Street Survival.

We had 9 students attended this special driving school designed for newly licensed driver to learn car control and awareness in real life situations. Students went through emergency stopping practice, lane change, skidpad, tight S-curves, and slalom exercises, first to learn their car’s capabilities and to gain confidence, and then to learn the danger of distracted driving; having their cellphone in their hands.

During lunch time, we brought in a full-size semi and parked several cars around it and had each student (as well as us instructors!) get in the cab and “see” how many cars they couldn’t see, to raise awareness when driving near semis. Airbag detonation was another fun awareness experience. This explosive exercise reinforced the fact that these are serious devices that while increasing crash safety, can also cause harm if not respected.

We appreciate all the volunteer instructors and course workers for making this valuable experience possible for the teen drivers. Also, special thanks to Jason Evans and Dart Logistics for providing an amazing truck for the semi demonstration. Finally, we would like to thank City of Oxford, MUPD, OPD, SCCA, BMWCCA and the TireRack Street Survival program for all of their efforts in making our event a success, and we hope that we can work with everyone in the future to make subsequent events even better.
