CHP hosts free teen driving Start Smart class

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - It's that time of month again--when local law enforcement officers teach the right and wrong in driving to teens.

On Tuesday, May 14, the California Highway Patrol will hold their free monthly Start Smart class.

Start Smart is aimed at helping newly licensed and future licensed teen drivers understand the critical responsibilities of driving.

Start Smart also focuses on the severe consequences that are attributed to poor judgment.  

Studies have shown that teen drivers who cause a fatal or injury crash are lucky enough to survive, almost universally say 'if I only knew this would happen, I would have done something different.'

The class will begin at 6 p.m. at the Bakersfield 420 Club located at 3910 Alfred Harrell Highway.
