News briefs: Winter driving class; Citizens Alliance meeting

With winter weather conditions again on the way, the California Highway Patrol is offering a winter driving safety class.

The class was created in an effort to prevent injuries and deaths resulting from winter-related vehicle crashes.

Officers will address topics including drinking and driving, winter preparation, snow tires, speed limits, tire-chain installation, anti-lock braking systems, stopping distances, restraint use and more. The class does not offer any behind-the-wheel training.

The class will take place from 9 to 11 a.m. Saturday at Lake Tahoe Community College, Room A-208. Space is limited to 50 people; to reserve a spot, call the South Lake Tahoe CHP office at (530) 577-1001.

The Citizens Alliance for Responsible Government, or CARG, will hold its next meeting from 6 to 8 p.m. Feb. 28 in the Barton Memorial Hospital boardroom.

The meeting’s topics will include candidates for the November city council elections, Fight the Blight efforts, and a review of what happened at the Feb. 22 public meeting on the city’s proposed redevelopment area.

Alliance members are encouraged to bring a guest to the meeting.
