Teen Driver Safety Class to be held Thursday

Collisions remain the number one killer of American teenagers, killing almost as many drivers as passengers and killing more kids than homicide or suicide. The same holds true in California.

On Thursday, September 17, 2015, the Williams Area CHP will host its first of two‘StartSmart’ class beginning at 6:30 PM at the Williams Area CHP Conference Room, 100 E Street in Williams. The second class is to be held on Thursday, September 17, 2015.

The Start Smart program utilizes innovative techniques to capture the attention of teens and parents, providing a lasting learning experience. The curriculum is built based on collision statistics, teen driver and passenger behaviors, graduated driver license (GDL) laws, cultural changes in today’s society, and the need for stronger parental involvement.

“Education is the most important aspect of a new driver’s ability to develop positive driving habits,” said CHP Commissioner Joe Farrow. “Programs like ‘StartSmart’ are geared towards influencing and educating California’s teen drivers to make the right choices when they get behind the wheel.”

Parents and teenagers can sign up for the FREE “Start Smart” class by contacting Officer Kristen Murphy at (530) 473-2821. Space is limited; seating reservation is required.
