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 by the year 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 tune up their driving skills, refresh their knowledge of the rules of the road, learn about normal age-related physical changes and how they affect driving ability. The program is supported by the Keeping Everyone Safe VI grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety.   The Solano CHP, Fairfield Office has partnered with the California Department of Motor Vehicle’s Senior Ombudsman program and the Solano Transportation Authority to assess the needs of the senior driving community.   The CHP will be conducting this free class on:   Thursday, June 6 2:00 P.M. to 4:00 P.M. Florence Douglas Senior Center 333 Amador Street Vallejo If you would like to attend this class, please call the Fairfield CHP Office to register at 707-428-2100.  For more information on the program, please visit Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.]]>
