Wilmington, NC (WWAY) — A local insurance company is doing their part to make sure that your child doesn’t become a statistic.

State Farm Insurance brought the Street Safe Driving Experience to the Independence Mall to help young drivers learn how to handle different road conditions.

The unique, hands on program, was designed to change the driving habits of teens that typically cause crashes.

“It doesn’t matter who they’re insured through we want to help teen safety,” said Rob Cutting a State Farm agent. “Ultimately that relates to decisions they’re making out there in the field like speeding and accidents, that means higher insurance premiums. We’re about saving lives and we’re trying to save lives.”

Teens who participated in the Celebrate My Drive event were automatically registered for a chance to win a brand new Chevy Sonic.
