Special to The SUN

A defensive driving class sponsored by the AARP Driver Safety Program is scheduled for 11:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 12, at the Pagosa Springs Senior Center, 451 Hot Springs Blvd.

The class is a nationwide, DMV- accredited, defensive driving program that emphasizes recognizing and compensating for naturally occurring, age-related changes to drivers.

Statistically, accident severity increases as drivers age. Learn strategies to help keep you safe.

All drivers are welcome. In Colorado, and most states, significant auto insurance discounts apply to drivers age 55 and older who complete the course.

The class is $12 for AARP members, $14 for non-members, and includes all class materials and light refreshments.

Call Lois O’Dell to register, or for additional information, at 259-5589.
