Hailee Steinfeld is Learning to Drive, Partners With Mercedes-Benz Driving Academy
Posted on October 16, 2012
Actress Hailee Steinfeld is learning to drive. She has partnered with the Mercedes-Benz Driving Academy (MBDA) to help kick-off National Teen Driver Safety Week.
Hailee, a California native, is a student herself having only recently started learning to drive with her 16th birthday coming up in December. The CDC lists a car crash as the number one cause of death amongst adolescents aged 15-20.
Hailee said in a statement, "Driving is a freedom and privilege that many teens take for granted. As I am learning to drive and my friends are too, it has become more of a personal issue for me to help spread the word about safe driving among my peers. I realized I need to do my part in getting the skills needed to make good decisions on the road through more extensive training."
Hailee also has an older brother, Griffin Steinfeld, who is a NASCAR driver. Here's an interview with Haillee at the driving school.
