AARP Driver Safety Class in Green River
The Green River Senior Center and AARP have scheduled a class for residents of Green River on Tuesday, November 10. The four hour class will be held from 1-5 p.m. at the Senior Center. "I am excited to be able to come and present this course to the residents of Green River, especially in November because AARP has designated November as Driver Safety Month. It will be the second time that I have taught a Driver Safety Class in Green River" said Leonard Miller, course instructor. The last class was taught as part of the Open House at the dedication of the new Center. Topics to be addressed include: the importance of vision and the changes in vision that take place as we age, also, how reaction time and flexibility is affected through aging, the impact of hearing while driving, and how to identify ways the older driver may compensate for these changes. The course, for drivers over 50 years old, also includes: information on defensive driving techniques, newest traffic laws, how to handle potential problem situations while performing left and right turns, right-of-way laws, freeway traffic, trucks and buses, and what to do if/when confronted with an aggressive driver(s). The proper use of anti-lock brakes, airbags and safety belts, and how to assess one's own and others' driving abilities will also be included. There are no tests given in this class. Members of AARP will pay a reduced fee for the course. An additional incentive for taking the class besides the driver information received is a discount on auto insurance for those who qualify.
