On average, 500 seniors are injured every day in crashes in the U.S., according to a Center for Disease Control report. The risk of injury or death, the report says, increases with age.
In an effort to educate older drivers on road safety techniques, the Chesterfield Police Department is partnering up with AARP to provide the “Older Driver Safety Program” course.
The course lasts four hours and is taught in the morning. It does not involve a test.
Some of the topics reviewed in the course involves rules of the road with an emphasis on defensive driving practices, according to a city of Chesterfield press release.
According to the release, seniors who complete the course may be eligible to receive a discount from their auto insurance company, however, the city advises seniors to check with their insurance company prior to enrolling in the course.
The course will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Nov. 7 at . There is a fee of $12 for AARP members and $14 for non-members.
Reservations are required to attend the course. For further information or to reserve a seat please contact officer Paul Powers at 636 537 6769 or via e-mail at email@example.com .
