This free, interactive, entertaining program presents: tips to understand driving safety; important and new traffic laws; bicycle and pedestrian safety; distracted driving information; inexpensive car safety accessories; resources; a discussion on road rage; DUI and much more.

Some of the information provided: how to develop a “plan” before you stop driving; a Transportation Cost Worksheet shows how to calculate current vehicle operating costs, illustrating available funds for public transportation if and when needed; and the opportunity to speak with and listen to a California Highway Patrol Officer in person.
