Greensboro, NC -- Car crashes are the leading cause of death for teenagers, and the summer months have the highest teen crash rates.
A non-profit group is doing its part to help change that. It's called "StreetSafe."
It's a hands-on driving program for teenagers that teaches them what to do when the unthinkable happens.
Sarah Clifford came all the way from Charlotte for Saturday's class.
For Sarah, it's something her parents are making mandatory, but she didn't seem to mind.
"I think it's great. I think we really need to implement it into driver's ed. This should be a part of driver's ed because we're not learning what could go wrong, they just show you the aftermath really. It's a little nerve-wracking at first, but it's definitely preparing you for real-life situations," said Sarah Clifford.
Organizers are putting on the "StreetSafe" experience once a month. All you have to do is sign-up online. Here's a link...
