MOUNT VERNON — Driving south for the winter and then back north for the summer can provide some driving challenges. If you are over the age of 60, perhaps you find driving under any condition is a challenge. A lot has happened in the 40-plus years since you first got behind the wheel: there more gadgets to operate, more vehicles on the road and more distractions that pose a danger when driving.
To help navigate these changes, the Safe Communities Coalition will host a two-day course entitled Safe Driving for Mature Drivers. The course will be held on June 13 and 14 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Station Break Senior Citizens Center located at 160 Howard St., Mount Vernon. Lunch will be provided both days.
The course is presented by AAA and is state certified which will enable attendees to get a discount if offered by their auto insurance provider. The course is taught by Mary Lou Gallimore, adult traffic manager with AAA, and is available to AAA members and non-members.
Pre-registration is required. To register, call Alayna Anderson at the Knox County Health Department, 740-392-2200, ext. 2232.
