Agenda For July 2016
Age Well, Drive Smart

speaker tonight is an Age Well, Drive Smart Instructor
from the California Highway Patrol.
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
(just around the corner). Knowing that much of this community
still relies on driving as their primary means of transportation,
the California Highway Patrol (CHP) promotes the Age Well,
Drive Smart program.
The CHP implemented the Age Well, Drive Smart program
to provide older drivers with the keys to driving safer and
driving longer. This presentation will provide 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.
Age Well, Drive Smart instructors are all CHP Senior Volunteers
who have been trained to bring this educational and stimulating
program to you, and is a cooperative effort between the California
Highway Patrol and the California Department of Motor Vehicles.
