Texas Health Huguley Hospital Fort Worth South’s senior program, Senior Class, will host an AARP Driver Safety Program on Thursday, March 27 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m in the amphitheater at Texas Health Huguley Fitness Center.
The AARP Driver Safety Program is the nation's first and largest refresher course for drivers. While the course is geared toward drivers age 50 and older, the course is open to all interested persons.
Class size is limited to the first 30 who register. The cost is $15 for AARP members and $20 for non-members. Make checks payable to AARP.
The training is designed to help you learn current rules of the road, how to operate your vehicle more safely in today's increasingly challenging driving environment, and adapt to common age-related changes in vision, hearing, and reaction time. The course also covers such topics as how to maintain proper following distance at all times; the safest way to change lanes and make turns at intersections; the effects of medications on driving; how to minimize the effect of dangerous blind spots; the importance of eliminating distractions, such as eating, smoking, and cell-phone use; proper use of safety belts, air bags, and anti-lock brakes, and ways to monitor your own and others' driving skills and capabilities.
Light refreshments and door prizes provided. To register for the event, contact Senior Class at 817-551-2652.
