TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Teenagers took to the track with some officers from the Tucson Police Department in order to learn important driving skills Saturday afternoon.

Sergeant Chris Widmer said the teens between the ages of 16 and 19 would be covering evasive steering, controlled braking, skid recovery, off road recovery and backing skills.

The program, called Safe Teen Accident Reduction Training or START for short, is sponsored by TPD and the Tucson Police Foundation.

For more information, be sure to watch the 5:30 p.m. KOLD newscast.
