Big Bear Lake, May 28, 2012, noon – Another Start Smart Class is scheduled for this week. The Start Smart program is a cooperative effort between the CHP, teenagers, and their parents. The class will help young drivers and their parents understand the responsibilities associated with driving a motor vehicle. The class will also show how poor choices behind the wheel can change the lives of everyone involved. The purpose of this program is to reduce the number of teen-related injuries and deaths due to collisions. The leading cause of death for Americans between 15 and 20 years old is motor vehicle collision. Tomorrow, May 29 at 6pm the California Highway Patrol (CHP) will present a Start Smart Class at the Municipal Water District building at 40524 Lakeview Drive in Big Bear Lake. There is no cost for attending the class.  RSVP by calling CHP Officer Benjamin Baker at 867-2791.
