The leading cause of death for Americans 15-20 years old is motor vehicle collision. The Start Smart program is a cooperative effort between the CHP, teenagers, and their parents/guardians. The purpose of this program is to help young drivers and their parents understand the responsibilities associated with driving, and to reduce the number of teen-related injuries and deaths due to collisions. The class will also show how poor choices behind the wheel can change the lives of everyone involved.
On September 22, 2009, at 6:00 p.m., the California Highway Patrol (CHP) in conjunction with the San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department will be presenting a free Start Smart Class at the former Twin Peaks Court Room in Twin Peaks, California.
Parents and new drivers interested in attending the class need to RSVP with CHP Officer Baker, by September 21, 2009, at (909) 867-2791. Space is limited to the first 40 students and additional classes will be scheduled as needed.
