A class promoting safety for older drivers as they adapt to changes that come with age will be held April 29 in Yuba City.
The effects of age on seniors’ driving ability varies widely, but CHP officials note that gradual incremental effects on vision, flexibility and response times may compromise safety and eventually require them to stop driving.
The Age Well Drive Smart program addressees these issues, and is designed for senior drivers, their caretakers and family members. The class will cover warning signs of diminished capabilities and discuss alternatives to driving.
The class will be held at 9 a.m. at Summerfield Senior Living, 1224 Plumas St., Yuba City. For reservations, call the Yuba Sutter area CHP office at (530) 674-5141.
The program is conducted in conjunction with the Department of Motor Vehicles, Department of Aging, Occupational Therapy Association of California and Paratransit Inc. Funding is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
