CHP hosts driving class for teenagers





   The California Highway Patrol’s next Start Smart program will begin next week.


   Start Smart is a driver safety education class that targets new and future licensed teenage drivers between 15-19, their parents and guardians.


   Officers discuss ways to avoid traffic collisions, what causes collisions, the responsibilities of drivers and parent and the use of seatbelts.


   Officers who have investigated fatal collisions involving teens will speak. Also, the class will see the latest “Red Asphalt” video that chronicles the aftermath of several teenage driver collisions.


   The CHP offers the Start Smart program to help newly and future licensed teen drivers become more aware of the responsibilities that accompany being a licensed California driver. The class is about two hours long.


   The next class will be at the Temecula Area CHP office on Thursday at 6 p.m. There is no cost, but space is limited.


   Information: Temecula Area CHP office, 951-506-2000.
