CHP Offers Free “Start Smart” Classes

Because the leading cause of death for Americans 15-20 years old is motor vehicle collisions, the California Highway Patrol (CHP), East Sacramento Area Office, will offer a free Start Smart class. Start Smart is a driver safety education class which targets new and future licensed teenage drivers between the age of 15-19, and their parents or guardians. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), mile for mile, teenagers are involved in three times as many fatal crashes as all other drivers. The Start Smart class will cover California’s Graduated Driver License Program, collision trends and avoidance techniques, distracted driving laws, and alcohol related driving laws. The program also offers an opportunity for new drivers and parents/guardians to ask CHP Officers clarifying questions. The class runs for approximately two hours.

WHEN: December 12, 2017 (Tuesday) from 6:30pm to 8:30pm

WHERE: CHP East Sacramento, 11336 Trade Center Drive, Rancho Cordova, CA 95742

Parents or guardians interested in signing up for the class can register by contacting Officer Tommy Riggin at (916) 464-1457, or at triggin@chp.ca.gov. Parents or guardians are urged to attend the class with their teen driver. If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact Officer Tommy Riggin at (916) 464-1457, or the on-call public information officer at (916) 802-5372.
