NorthWest Autosports Association (NWAA) will hold its seventh annual Come Home Alive teen drivers safety program Friday through Sunday in Astoria. Highway accidents are the number one killer of young people in America. The NWAA Come Home Alive program has been nationally recognized as an innovative approach to helping solve this problem.
Students receive a ground school program, and then are teamed up with experienced drivers from the competition ranks from around the Pacific Northwest and given hands-on experience in extreme driving situations. Students bring their own cars, and the training is done in a controlled environment under the direct supervision of experienced racing drivers.
The cost for the program is $15. Proceeds will be donated to local drivers education programs. There is a limited enrollment of 30 students between ages 16 and 21 and legally licensed or permitted to drive. Parental consent is required for all students younger than 18.
