Are your biggest driving obstacles coming from behind the steering wheel? Mercy St. Francis Hospital is hosting an AARP Driver Safety Course on Nov. 5 to provide answers to today’s driving challenges like cell phones, medications and slowed reaction time.
The course will also teach drivers how to compensate for changes in vision and hearing; how to handle problem situations such as left turns, right-of-way, freeway traffic, trucks and blind spots; and what to do if confronted by an aggressive driver. Attendees will also be taught how to assess their own and others’ abilities through a Personal Driving Capability Index.
Course admission for AARP members is $15; non-members will be charged $20. Some insurance companies offer discounts to those who have taken this course.
The course will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 5, in the conference room at Mercy St. Francis Hospital, located at 100 W. US Highway 60. Class size is limited. Call 417-934-7000 to reserve your seat.
