Start Smart Driver Program

The Fillmore Police Station will be hosting a program to educate newly licensed and future drivers. This program will take place on Monday, September 18, 2023, from 4:00 PM until 7:00 PM at the Fillmore High School Library. The “Start Smart” Program is a cooperative effort between California Highway Patrol, Fillmore Police Station, teenage drivers, and their parents/guardians.

In an ongoing effort focused on community outreach, this is a proactive, educational program
geared toward reducing potential risk on our roadways. 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 poor choices 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.

Call the Fillmore Police Department at (805) 524-2233 for reservations. Space is limited to 20 students and their parents/guardians. There is no charge to attend the program.
