 The Start Smart Class is a cooperative effort between the California Highway Patrol, teenagers, and their parents/guardians.  The goal of the class is to help young drivers and their parents understand the responsibilities associated with driving a motor vehicle.  The class will also show how poor choices behind the wheel can change the lives of everyone involved. 

The purpose of this program is to reduce the number of teen-related injuries and deaths due to collisions.  According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Office of Traffic Safety (OTS), over 68,000 teens have died in car crashes in the last decade.

Wednesday November 26th, at 6:00 P.M., the local California Highway Patrol (CHP) will be presenting an updated Class at the CHP Arrowhead Office located at 31230 State Route 18 in Running Springs, CA 92382. Space is limited to the first 25 students and parents, additional classes will be scheduled as needed. 

There is no cost for attending the Start Smart Class.  Parents and new drivers interested in attending the class need to RSVP with CHP Officer Quintero, by November 25th, 2014 at (909) 867-2791.
