The CHP and Central Coast Senior Services, Inc. invite older drivers to attend a free “Age Well, Drive Smart” class that provides tools to keep them safe on the road as long as possible. The class is a great way for seniors to educate themselves, evaluate their driving abilities, and improve their driving skills. Talking about, and enrolling in these classes are great ways to open up a dialogue with a loved one about their driving abilities.
California’s older driver population is numbering about 2.9 million today. It is estimated, there will be over four million residents age 65 and older in California by the year 2020. Knowing that much of this community still relies on driving as their primary means of transportation, the “Age Well, Drive Smart” program is reaching out to older adults to help keep them safe on the road.
The program is supported by the Keeping Everyone Safe (KEYS) grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety. The “Age Well, Drive Smart” class provides education specifically designed to help seniors tune up their driving skills, refresh their rules of the road knowledge, learn about normal age-related physical changes and how they affect driving ability.
Central Coast Senior Services, Inc., and Monterey CHP will be hosting a free “Age Well, Drive Smart” program:
Tuesday July 8th from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
The Park Lane, Vista Lounge
200 Glenwood Circle, Monterey
No RSVP is required.
