The Herald Bulletin

---- — PENDLETON — On Tuesday, Sept. 10, an AARP driver safety class is scheduled to be held at the Pendleton YMCA in Pendleton. This four-hour class, taught by John Streaty, is aimed at keeping older drivers on the road safely and saving lives.

By taking a driver safety course participants will learn the current rules of the road, defensive driving techniques, and how to operate a vehicle more safely in today's increasingly challenging driving environment. They'll learn how to manage and accommodate common age-related changes in vision, hearing and reaction time. Drivers may be eligible to receive an insurance discount upon completing the course. They might also be eligible to receive a discount on roadside assistance plans. This four-hour class is scheduled to begin at noon at the Pendleton YMCA, 6511 S. Indiana 67. Cost to AARP members is $12 and only $14 for non-AARP members. To register for this class, call 221-7508 and ask to be added to the class list.
