driving safety



October 22, 2013 (Sacramento) – Nationwide, collisions are the leading cause of death for teenagers, and California is not immune to this disturbing trend.  Each year, thousands of young drivers and their passengers are killed in collisions.  To help bring awareness to this national problem, the California Highway Patrol (CHP) will participate in National Teen Driver Safety Week October 20-26, 2013.

“It only takes a second of inattention behind the wheel to cause a tragedy,” said CHP Commissioner Joe Farrow.  “This week we are dedicated to educating our inexperienced drivers on the dangers of unsafe driving and providing them with the information needed to be safe on our roadways.”
