The Sheriff's Department's Start Smart program was featured on NBC7 News in the Morning. The summer break is great time for parents and their children to take a Start Smart class.
A teenager might say: "I know everything," but parents sti...ll play a critical role. If you have a teenager who is now starting to drive, we urge you to take a Sheriff's Start Smart class with your son or daughter. Since June 2010, free Start Smart classes have been regularly offered to new drivers and their parents/guardians so they clearly understand their responsibilities when a teen starts to drive. The class also clarifies the restrictions of a provisional license. Participants also hear from people who have lost loved ones in drunk or distracted driving crashes.
