AARP spring driver safety classes

High Country RSVP presents AARP spring driver safety classes from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, April 1, at the CMC Glenwood Center, 1402 Blake Ave.

The AARP Driver Safety Class is directed towards drivers 50 and over. The class covers the following driving topics: how to compensate for changes in vision, hearing and reaction time; how to handle problem situations such as left turns, right of way, freeway traffic, trucks and blind spots while driving; what to do if confronted by an aggressive driver; how medications may affect driving; how to properly use anti-lock brakes, air bags and safety belts; and how to assess your own and others’ driving abilities with a Personal Driving Capability Index. There is a $15 fee for AARP members and a $20 fee for nonmembers for the workbook and handouts payable to the instructor. Classes are taught by RSVP volunteers.
