Monday, February 24 & 25 AARP Mature Drivers Safety Course: 8:30am – 1:00 pm. This is a 2 part course. Driving is a skill that can and should be continually improved. This course can help you keep driving knowledge fresh and get the most out of your vehicle, while reducing risk to you, your passengers and others on the road. Taking a comprehensive driving improvement program will ensure that you have the most up-to-date driving techniques and understand the latest vehicle technologies. As you age, it is important to know and understand how to adjust for slower reflexes, weaker vision and other changes. Some of the benefits related to taking a safe driving course are: Potential discount on insurance premiums and getting up to speed on the latest in vehicle technology, such as anti-lock brakes (ABS) and lane-departure warning systems, and how they affect your driving. As a group, the oldest drivers are at a higher risk of having a serious collision per mile driven than any other age group except for those under age 25. Drivers in their late 70s have about the same number of injury-involved crashes per mile driven as drivers in their early 20s. And drivers age 85 and older are injured or killed in crashes at a higher rate than any other age group. This is due primarily to increased fragility that comes with age. Older adults are generally less able to withstand the forces of a crash, so they are more likely to become injured, compared with younger, stronger and fitter individuals. Older adults also don’t typically recover from injuries as quickly as they once did.
