Community Education Program targets safety for senior drivers


MONTICELLO — The Community Education Program at the University of Arkansas at Monticello is partnering with AARP to present a Driver Safety Program to help senior drivers understand the effects of aging, adapt to changes faced as we age, identify the most common crash situations, and reduce the chances of having a crash.

The class will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 13 in the Caucus Room of the John F. Gibson University Center. The cost of the class is $12 for AARP members and $14 for non-members. Checks should be made payable to AARP.

“Most insurance carriers offer a discount to customers who qualify and complete the course,” explained Memorie Dickson, coordinator of Community Education. “The savings can be significant. We suggest that participants check with their carriers, as savings vary.”
