According to several news articles released in the State of California, there have been over a thousand crashes caused by teen drivers in the past year.
This tristful fact has pressed the California Highway Patrol to act. According to the article, a campaign to bring education and awareness comprehending road safety and traffic laws has just begun and it is completely focused on teen drivers from all over the state.
The program is called ‘Start Smart’ and it’s a set of lessons destined to teens that are still unaware of most dangers they will face while driving. Among many other subjects, young drivers will learn unique collision avoidance techniques, correct rules, traffic laws and proper driving etiquette.
The troopers hope young drivers will have a better start after learning how to properly handle the responsibility of driving a vehicle. The focus is to keep the statistics from climbing any faster and preparing teen drivers to face the major dangers the road can present them in the future.
As a Los Angeles car accident lawyer and a parent I hope that this program will educate teen drivers extensively so a whole generation of aware and alert drivers can make the roads in California much safer.
Whenever you or a loved one is involved in an accident related to the reckless driving of others, contact a personal injury lawyer and have all your questions regarding personal injury cases answered right away.
