Williams CHP to Teach Teen Driver Program

The California Highway Patrol and the Williams Pioneer Review is teaming up to teach “Smart Start” in an effort to reduce the number of Collisions and injuries involving teen drivers.

“In the last year, we have had three tragic traffic collisions that involved teen drivers,” said Lloyd Green Jr., publisher of the Williams Pioneer Review, “these collisions could have been avoided, and we need to raise awareness and teach our youth how to react during certain situations.”

Smart Start addresses traffic safety issues that directly affect new drivers in a way no other program does. Start Smart speaks directly to the newly licensed drivers and their parents or guardians. This program entails collision avoidance techniques, collision causing elements, driver responsibilities from highly trained California Highway Patrol Officers; in addition to a testimonial from Green whom lost his younger brother in a traffic collision.

“When a loved perishes in a vehicle collision due to the negligence of another, you begin to wonder how could it have be prevented – and how can I prevent it from happening again,” added Green, “our schools lack the proper training to educate our teen drivers and this is just one step in preparing today’s youth for the road.”

Smart Start makes teens and parents aware of the responsibilities they face and teaches what precautions to take to stay safe. The first class will be held at the Williams CHP Conference Room located at 100 E Street in Williams, on January 20th. Classes begin at 7:00 p.m.

Motor vehicle collisions nationwide are the leading cause of death for teenage drivers. California has the second highest fatality rate involving drivers between the ages of 15 and 20.

“This tragic loss of young lives is a concern to us, and we hope this program will reduce the death toll,” stated Officer Kristin Murphy
