The Roselle Police Department, in cooperation with the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) is hosting a Smart Driver Course on July 20 & 21. The class will meet from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on each day of the course, at the Roselle Police Department, 103 S. Prospect. The cost is $20 for AARP members or $25 for non-members. The fee covers all classroom materials. Coffee and rolls will be served.
The program is a two- day course and is open to all drivers. Participants will refine existing driving skills and develop safe, defensive driving techniques. They will review how to handle adverse driving conditions and traffic hazards and learn about the effects of aging and medication on driving, as well as much more. Currently, several automobile insurance companies, in the majority of states provide a multi-year premium reductions to graduates of the course who are 55 years of age or older.
The Smart Driver Course results in safer roads for everyone. Older drivers benefit from increased confidence on the road, better driving records, lower insurance rates and a continuing mobile, independent lifestyle for additional years.
