Tucson Police to Offer Teens Valuable Driving Lessons

The Safe Teen Accident Reduction Training (START) program aims to teach teenage drivers how to avoid traffic collisions and stay safe behind the wheel. The collaborative effort between the Tucson Police Department and the nonprofit Tucson Police Foundation is behind-the-wheel training with police driving instructors showing new licensees how to drive, complete with driving on a wet road while maneuvering through cones and skidding at speeds of up to 45 miles per hour on the Tucson Police Academy track at the Southern Arizona Law Enforcement Training Center, 10001 S. Wilmot Road.

A $50 donation is suggested to participate, but it is not required. The next sessions are scheduled for Nov. 8, Dec. 5, and Dec. 19.
