Free Class Hosted by Marin CHP Aims to Teach Teens, Parents Road Safety

California Highway Patrol officers will help the young drivers-- and their parents-- understand some of the important responsibilities that go along with driving a motor vehicle.

The following was submitted for publication by the Marin CHP: 

On Wednesday, July 30th, at 7:00 p.m., the California Highway Patrol (CHP) will be presenting a Start Smart Class at the CHP Marin Area Office which is located at 53 San Clemente Dr, Corte Madera, CA 94925. 


The Start Smart program is a cooperative effort between the CHP, allied law enforcement agencies, teenagers, and their parents/guardians. The leading cause of death for Americans 15-20 years old is motor vehicle collisions. 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 reveal 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.


There is no cost for attending the class. Parents and new drivers interested in attending the class need to RSVP with the Marin CHP office by Tuesday, July 29th, at (415) 924-1100. Space is limited to the first 30 students and parents, additional classes will be scheduled as needed.
