FORT MILL, S.C. (Nov. 12, 2012)—The South Carolina National Safety Council recognized Continental Tire the Americas L.L.C. at its sixth annual "Alive at 25" Coalition Benefit Dinner for its continued support of the "Alive at 25" program.
Bill Caldwell, vice president of marketing and sales, said the partnership with the South Carolina National Safety Council helps reduce fatalities and educate young drivers on their responsibility behind the wheel.
Conti explained the "Alive at 25" program is an intervention program for young drivers that focuses on those aged 15 through 24, the group most likely to be involved in fatal collisions.
It is a survival course developed by the National Safety Council and is designed to prevent the No. 1 killer of teens: automobile crashes.
Fort Mill-based Conti reported that to date, it has helped thousands of local high school students participate in the life-saving program free of charge—and the program has become mandatory in York County schools.
