Free traffic safety class offered to teen drivers, parents

From page A3 | May 10, 2013 |

The leading cause of death for Americans ages 15 to 20 is motor vehicle collisions. Mile for mile, teenagers are involved in three times as many fatal crashes as all other drivers, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

In an effort to reduce traffic fatalities in California, the Woodland office of the California Highway Patrol will offer a free Start Smart class for drivers ages 15-19 and their parents or guardians.

The Start Smart class will cover collision avoidance techniques, driver responsibility, collision trends, distracted driving laws, alcohol-related driving laws and the provisional license process. The program also offers an opportunity for new drivers and parents to ask CHP officers clarifying questions. The class incorporates videos and classroom discussion.

It will meet from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 15, at the Woodland Police Department, 1000 Lincoln Ave. in Woodland. Space is limited; to register, call 530-662-4685.

Funding for CHP’s Start Smart programs is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through NHTSA. For more information, call CHP Officer Bryan Konvalin at 530-662-4685.
