Narrative: The Camarillo Police Department will be hosting a program to educate newly licensed and future drivers. This program will take place on Wednesday, September 29th, 2021 from 5:30PM until 8:30PM at the Camarillo Police Station Community Room. The “Start Smart” Program is a cooperative effort between the California Highway Patrol, Camarillo Police Department, teenage drivers, and their parents/guardians.
In an attempt to remain proactive and not reactive, Start Smart 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 traffic collisions.
CDC guidelines will be adhered to during class so please wear a mask and continue to practice social distancing. Hand sanitizer will be provided, but please feel free to bring your own.
For reservations, call the Camarillo Police Department Community Resource Unit at (805) 388-5155. Space is limited to 20 students and their parents/guardians. There is no charge to attend the program.
