California Highway Patrol Offers Teen Driving Safety Classes

By Kelly Balamuth on January 16, 2012

The California Highway Patrol is offering safety classes for teen drivers in north Sacramento and in Santa Maria in the coming weeks, according to news reports from KSBY and The Sacramento Bee. The classes are designed to help teen drivers understand the risks of driving and encourage safe driving habits by both teens and their parents.

Northern California Teen Driver SafetyThe Sacramento classes are being offered on January 18 and February 16, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:45 p.m., at the California Highway Patrol’s Northern Sacramento office on Tyler Street in the Foothill farms area. The class, known as “Smart Start,” offers information on avoiding collisions, distracted driving, and drunk driving. Officers from the Highway Patrol will also be available to answer questions.

The Santa Maria class is being offered on January 31, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., at the California Highway Patrol’s Santa Maria post. Parents are also welcome to attend. The class will cover the consequences of crashes and crash avoidance techniques, feature a speaker who caused a fatal crash as a young driver, and have officers available to answer questions.

Drivers between ages 17 and 20 are most likely to cause serious accidents, even though they represent only four percent of the drivers on California roads. Safety classes can be especially helpful for teaching these drivers to keep themselves and others safe.
