Free workshops keep seniors driving safely

  • Apr. 13, 2011 12:00 p.m.

The Safe Communities Unit is offering a program for seniors designed to help mature drivers review their driving, reduce risk and remain safe drivers.

The free workshops take place today from 10 a.m. to noon at the Schubert Centre and again May 4 and 11, same time and place.

A community-based approach with trained facilitators is used and anchored in the philosophy of seniors helping seniors.  The workshops provide practical tools and tips for seniors to help them increase their safety on the road and the presenters find it gratifying to help their fellow seniors maintain their safety, mobility and connection to their community.
