California Highway Patrol Press Release California’s senior population is proving to be one of the fastest growing driving-age demographics in the state. It is estimated, there will be over six million residents age 65 and older in California in 2020. Knowing that much of this community still relies on driving as their primary means of transportation, the California Highway Patrol (CHP) is continuing the Age Well Drive Smart program. The Age Well Drive Smart class is an education program specifically designed to help seniors evaluate their driving skills, refresh their knowledge of the rules of the road, learn about physical changes related to age and how they affect driving ability. This program helps to assist seniors with a self-assessment to identify these changes and provide possible corrective options. The California Highway Patrol Woodland Area office will be conducting this free class on Monday, March 16, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Winters Police Department, 702 Main St., in Winters. If you would like to attend this class, please call the California Highway Patrol Woodland Area office to register at 530-662-4685. Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Any additional information about this news release should be directed to Officer Fitzhugh who will be available at the CHP Woodland Area business phone number: 530-662-4685, Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.]]>
