San Andreas C.H.P. To Host “Start Smart” Class

Sponsored by:

San Andreas, CA — The C.H.P. will host a “Start Smart” class for teenage drivers and their parents Thursday evening at 6:30.

The purpose of the program is aimed at helping newly licensed and future licensed teenage drivers understand the critical responsibilities of driving and to understand that accidents do happen, but collisions are 100 percent preventable.

The primary objective of “Start Smart” is to provide teens and their parents/guardians with an interactive safe-driving awareness class that will illustrate how poor choices behind the wheel of a car can affect the lives of numerous people.

A recent statistical analysis revealed that California’s teenage drivers are involved in fatal collisions at a higher rate that other drivers. Additionally teen drivers are found at fault in 66 percent of all collisions, even though they represent only four percent of the state’s licensed drivers.

The Thursday evening class is already filled however reservations for future classes are already being taken for the highly popular instruction. You can contact the C.H.P. Office on Mountain Ranch Rd. at (209) 754-3541 during regular business hours.
