In light of recent data gathered by multiple law enforcement agencies in California, news outlets have been reporting that the California Highway Patrol has organized yet another educational event that hopes to educate teen drivers and their parents about the importance of driving safely.
These free and open safe driving classes are being held all across the state in various times and dates. Teen drivers and their parents or guardians are urged to contact their local California Highway Patrol office to check the next events and ask about the possibility of enrollment in these free classes that aim to eradicate distracted driving and make roads in California safer.
According to a recent article, at least 66 percent of fatal auto crashes that are reported in California involve teen drivers, who represent only four percent of the state’s licensed drivers.
To lower this number of fatal accidents and increase safety among newly licensed motorists, the CHP and other law enforcement agencies urge parents to stress the importance of safe driving and attending to educational events like the one held by the CHP.
Many young drivers are still very unaware of the dangers of certain distracted practices while behind the wheel. Hopefully, more drivers will participate in this event and California will soon become a safer state for motorists.
