Start Smart Young Adult Drivers Program Offered August 30th, 2018

Smart Start Driving

(Thousand Oaks, Ca) The Thousand Oaks Police Department will present the Smart Start Program for young adult drivers on August 30th, 2018, at the Thousand Oaks Police Station. Start Smart is a cooperative effort between the California Highway Patrol, Thousand Oaks Police Department, teenage drivers, and their parents.

Nationwide, 43 percent of first-year drivers and 37 percent of second-year drivers are involved in car crashes. The risk of motor vehicle crashes is higher among 16-19-year-olds than among any other age group. In fact, per mile driven, teen drivers ages 16 to 19 are nearly three times more likely than drivers aged 20 and older to be in a fatal crash.

The Thousand Oaks Police Department will be hosting the Start Smart Program to educate newly licensed and future licensed drivers. The Start Smart Program is designed to help young
drivers and their parents/guardians understand the responsibilities associated with driving a motor vehicle. Start Smart will show how a poor choice behind the wheel can change the lives of everyone involved. Our goal is to raise awareness and reduce the number of teen-related injuries and deaths due to collisions.
Interested parents are asked to call the Thousand Oaks Police Department Traffic Bureau at (805)
494-8271 for more information and to make a reservation. Space is limited to 25 students and their parents.
There is no charge to attend the program.
July 19, 2018 9:00am
The class is now full. Classes are offered every month by the California Highway Patrol. Interested parents can reach the Moorpark CHP at (805) 553-0800. The next available class is on July 26. Another one will be offered at the end of August but the date has not been confirmed as of today.
