According to a series of news articles, the distracted driving awareness month may be over but the California Highway Patrol hasn’t stopped coming up with new events and classes to teach safe driving skills to teen drivers in California.
The official report recently issued by the CHP shows that troopers will be offering more driving classes for teenagers and their parents or guardians on May 9th in Tehachapi. According to the release issued by the authorities, the Start Smart classes are free for all teens who are learning to drive or who have just received their first permit. Safe driving tips will be taught to drivers and their parents in interactive classes. According to several troopers involved in this educational project, teen drivers will learn to acquire critical decision-making skills, which could assist young drivers and keep them from being involved in accidents.
The authorities encourage guardians and parents to attend to the classes as well. For more information, please contact the nearest California Highway Patrol office.
As a Fresno personal injury lawyer, I’m glad that the authorities are coming up with more educational projects to teach young drivers the importance of staying alert and focusing on the road ahead. Distracted driving is one of the major causes of crashes in the state and because of that, I’m always happy to learn about troopers attempting to teach young drivers the importance of ignoring distractions and focusing on what’s important.
Drivers must remember that safety should always come first.
Keep it in mind that if you or a loved one is involved in an accident that was caused by a distracted driver, you could consider consulting with a personal injury lawyer near you to learn more about the legal options related to your case.
