AAA Recommends Top Cars For Teens
Most teenagers have one criteria for what kind of car they buy: what they can afford. Parents who help their kids out with purchasing a vehicle though may probably consider some other factors- how safe and reliable a car is, plus how affordable.
Using that criteria, AAA compiled a list of top vehicles for teens. I have to admit, I was surprised at their top pick, which I drove when I was in high school many, many years ago! Here are their recommendations.
SRTC is the federally designated Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for Spokane County. Urbanized areas with populations exceeding 50,000 people are required to have an MPO. SRTC was formed to address the county's transportation planning needs. It provides coordination in planning between the public, cities, small towns, the county, the state, transit providers, and tribes.
SRTC offers services including transportation monitoring, transportation modeling, census information analysis, travel demand forecasting, historical traffic count analysis, geographic information systems, and trip generation rates.
