Special to The SUN

A defensive driving class sponsored by AARP Driver Safety Program is scheduled for Thursday, May 23, at the Pagosa Springs Senior Center, 451 Hot Springs Blvd., from 11:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m.

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

The class is a nationwide, DMV-accredited, defensive driving program that highlights recognizing and compensating for naturally occurring, age-related changes that happen as drivers age. Statistically, accident severity increases as we age. Learn strategies to help keep you safe.

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