HARRISBURG, Pa. - A driver education workshop designed to meet the needs of older motorists will be held from 8 a.m. to noon Monday and Tuesday, Sept. 22 and 23, at the Shippensburg Firefighters' Activity Center, West Orange Street, Shippensburg.
The 55 ALIVE course reteaches the basic rules of dirving because most of the violations committed by older citizens are basic driving errors such as incorrect lane changing and passing, entering and leaving expressways and improper turning. The course also covers accident prevention measures and the effect of adverse driving conditions such as darkness, inclement weather and rush hour traffic.
Individuals completing the course are eligible for a five percent reduction in their insurance rates. To be eligible for the reduction, both sessions must be attended. If a vehicle is jointly owned, both owners must attend the course.
To register, send a check or money order for $8 per person to either of U.S. Rep. Jeff Coy's district offices at 39 W. King St., Shippensburg, Pa. 17257 or to 70 W. King St., Chambersburg, Pa. 17201. Checks should be made out to the AARP.
