Tues. March 28 at 2:00 A Safe Drive Through the Aging Process - Senior Center

Developed specifically for senior drivers, this presentation is best described as a practical, entertaining and realistic approach to the issue of "senior drivers vs. the aging process". It takes a direct yet compassionate approach to the very sensitive subject of recognizing that someday it may be time to relinquish some of that treasured driving independence. The ultimate goal is not to take away driving opportunities of older drivers, but rather to offer suggestions on how to recognize and compensate for diminishing skills so that our seniors may remain on the roadways as safe drivers.
