CHP hosts ‘Start Smart’ class for teens Thursday
Teen drivers, those in the hunt for their driver's license and their families are invited to attend the CHP's free Start Smart driving course 6:30-8:30 p.m. Thursday, July 17 at the Aptos branch of the Santa Cruz Public Library, at 7695 Soquel Drive. Traffic collisions are the leading cause of death for 15-20 year olds. Through videos and discussion about traffic laws, collision dynamics and more, Start Smart aims to make future and newly licensed teenage drivers become aware of the responsibilities that accompany the privilege of being a licensed California driver. Also during the two hour course, new drivers will learn that poor decision making behind the wheel -- such as speeding, DUI, giving in to peer pressure and using cell phones -- affect the lives of many people. For information and to register, call the Santa Cruz CHP Office at 831-662-0511.
