The Solano Area California Highway Patrol will conduct a Start Smart teen driving class in conjunction with the Vacaville Library on Tuesday, March 27, at Vacaville High School, 100 West Monte Vista Avenue in Vacaville, 6-8:15 p.m. Students are required to bring a parent.
Start Smart is an education program for both teenage drivers and their parents. Statistics show that young drivers who have recently received their driver’s license are five times more likely to be involved in an accident than more seasoned, experienced drivers. Traffic collisions continue to be the leading cause of death for young people, age 15-20.
Start Smart is a review of the rules of the road, some video clips and related movies designed to inform parents of the restrictions on teen drivers and give some important information to those teens that are about to or have recently received their license.
There is no cost for the classes, no need to sign up and parents are required to attend.
For more information, call Officer David Harvey at the Solano Area CHP Office in Fairfield, (707) 428-2100.
This program is supported by a grant awarded by the California Office of Traffic Safety
Administration through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
