Free teen driver safety classes offered

Submitted By California Highway Patrol

The California Highway Patrol is committed to reducing the amount of teen injury and fatal collisions that occur throughout California. In partnership with the California Office of Traffic Safety, the CHP has created the ÒStart SmartÓ Program, a teen driver safety class that empowers young persons and their parents to make the right decisions behind the wheel. ÒStart SmartÓ teaches teens and their parents about safe driving habits, and informs them of the responsibilities and dangers associated with operating a motor vehicle. The goal of the class is to ensure that teens are safe, responsible drivers who are less likely to be involved in an injury or fatal collision in their future.

The month of April has been designated as ÒDistracted Driving Awareness MonthÓ by the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS). During this month, the CHP will offer free ÒStart SmartÓ courses in several locations across the Bay Area. To attend an event, please call the number listed after the location to reserve your spot. We ask that at least one parent or guardian attend with their teen driver.
