    Young drivers were pushed to the limit Sunday at a full day Street Survival class, held at Monroe Community College. Twenty four drivers between the ages of 16 and 18 had to complete six courses that tested their driving skills.

    Young driver, Emily Scripps said, “It’s kind of like a rollercoaster almost, ya know? You feel like your stomach goes up into your head.”

    The twists and turns in this safety driving course were a bit of a challenge for Emily Scripps.

    She said, “At first I was really, really nervous, and it was like nerve wracking.”

    Scripps has had her license for just under a year.

    She said she came out to the Street Survival program to learn more about the real life obstacles she may face as a young driver.

    “Showing you how to push your limits, and when you push your limits, what to do in those situations,” she said.

    All 24 drivers were paired with a high performance driving instructor.
