STRONGSVILLE, Ohio - All across the U.S. and Canada, State Farm will be rallying communities to promote teen driver safety by hosting more than 360 events simultaneously on Sept. 15.
Southpark Mall in Strongsville is home to one of the largest events in North America and State Farm is encouraging area residents to attend the event to support teens as they learn to drive and get ready for the road ahead.
