FAIRFIELD — Teens can take part in a free, two-hour driver safety class offered by the California Highway Patrol.
Participants will listen to officers and speakers address such issues as driving responsibilities and collision avoidance techniques. The program is billed as being interactive and is called “Start Smart.” Parents or guardians must attend along with their teen.
A class will begin at 6 p.m. March 21 at the Fairfield Cordelia Library, 5050 Business Center Drive in Fairfield. Another class will begin at 6 p.m. March 19 at Dixon High School, 455 E. A St. in Dixon.
“It’s important to remember, accidents do happen, but collisions are preventable,” CHP Commissioner Joe Farrow said in a press release. “Poor choices behind the wheel of a vehicle can affect the lives of numerous people.”
