AARP Encourages Older Drivers to Brush Up on Safe Driving

By Grant Law Office on November 3, 2014 - Comments off

Throughout Georgia, there are thousands of drivers who have not taken a driver education class in well over 30 years. But a lot can change in just a few years when it comes to cars and the people who drive them. Every motorist can benefit from taking a refresher course, but according to the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), driver education is especially important for motorists in the 50-plus age group.

In older to help keep drivers age 50 and over in top driving condition, AARP provides driver safety courses both online and in classrooms throughout Georgia. These courses are specifically designed to address age-related changes that drivers experience as they get older, such as vision or hearing loss, and slowed reaction time.

Additionally, drivers will learn the following:

  • How medications may affect driving skills
  • How to accommodate age-related changes
  • How to understand and safely use the latest technology in newer vehicles,
  • Proper use of anti-lock braking systems, emergency brakes, and air bags
  • Safe ways to change lanes, make turns in intersections and minimizing blind spots

More importantly, the AARP Smart Driver courses are available to both AARP members and non-members alike and may provide insurance discounts upon completion.

The Atlanta car accident lawyers at the Grant Law Office encourage drivers to take safety precautions when out on the road, at any age. If you or someone you love has been hurt in an auto accident, do not hesitate to contact us for trusted legal guidance.
