The California Highway Patrol, in partnership with the American Occupation
Therapy Association, recognizes this week as Older Driver Safety Awareness
Week. To help California’s senior drivers maintain their driving
independence for as long as they can safely drive, the CHP offers a 2
hour “Age Well, Drive Smart” program supported by the Keeping
Everyone Safe grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety. The
program allows senior drivers an opportunity to tune up their driving
skills, refresh their knowledge of the rules of the road and learn about
normal age-related physical and mental challenges and how to adjust to them.
To find out when the next Age Well, Drive Smart course is being offered,
call your local CHP office or go online at www.chp.ca.gov and visit the
Aging Driver Programs information page.
