Please join Sanlogo-01 Ramon Valley Street Smarts on Tuesday, November 15, 2016 from 7 p.m. – 9 p.m. at California High School Theater in San Ramon for the California Highway Patrol (CHP) “Start Smart” program, sponsored by State Farm®.

Start Smart is a two-hour driver safety education class delivered by the CHP to new and future teenage drivers and their parents/legal guardians. At the event, CHP officers speak directly to the audience through candid conversations by discussing collision factors associated with teen drivers, collision avoidance techniques, aspects of distracted driving, driver/parent responsibilities and what precautions they all need to stay safe.

At least one parent must attend with their teen. (Note: The presentation contains graphic “accident” images, which are unsuitable for children under 15 years old.)

See flyer below for additional details! 

Doors open at 6:00pm for “Texting while Driving” simulator until 6:45pm. Presentation is from 7:00pm – 9:00pm. Please arrive on-time. Late arrivals will not be accommodated.

This event is free and open to teens/parents in the San Ramon Valley and beyond. To register your teen, visit http://chp-bayarea.eventbrite.com and choose the date and location from the list.
