Automobile accidents are the No. 1 killer of teens in America, with 5,000 deaths each year. What’s more, of the 2.2 million accidents per year among inexperienced drivers, 12 percent can be attributed to tire related issues, such as insufficient tread or pressure. Even so, few driver’s education programs offer instruction on tire maintenance and safety. Because many of these accidents are preventable, Michelin and FIA have joined together to launch a new campaign, Beyond the Driving Test, to raise awareness of tire maintenance and safety. This will make available resources designed to initiate conversation between parents and teens, and among teen drivers and their peers.
