Southeast Coalition for Roadway Safety Offers Free Driver Training Course for Seniors

WILLOW SPRINGS - The Southeast Coalition for Roadway Safety and Howell County Health Center is sponsoring an AARP Older Driver Safety class on Friday, June 28 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., with a break for lunch. It will be located at the Howell County Health Department, 180 S. Kentucky St., West Plains, Mo.

The class will consist of video presentations, lecture and discussion. There are no tests and will be a number of breaks. The Southeast Coalition is covering the regular class fees of $12 for AARP members and $14 for nonmembers. Advanced registration is requested. To register, please contact Regional Coalition Contact Sandra Taurone at (573) 472-5388 or via email at sandra.taurone@modot.mo.gov.

The AARP Driver Safety Program is the nation's first and largest refresher course for driver's ages 50 and older. Participants will update their knowledge of today's roads, traffic laws, vehicles, the effects of medications on driving and how to adjust their driving to suit common age-related changes in vision, hearing and reaction time.

Safe driving is a challenge for all drivers. People attending the class will learn driving strategies that take into account the effects of aging. They will identify the most common crash situations and how to reduce the chances of having a crash. Seniors who take part in the training not only learn useful skills, but may be eligible for discounts on their auto insurance.

For more information or to register, contact Taurone at (573) 472-5388 or email at Sandra.taurone@modot.mo.gov.
