AARP Smart Driving class set for 1 p.m. Thursday

An AARP Smart Driving class, sponsored by the Routt County Council on Aging, will be held from 1 to 5 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 5 at the Steamboat Springs Community Center. The class is designed to help drivers 50 and older compensate for age-related changes.

Many millions of people have taken this course throughout the years, and it has been statistically shown to reduce the number of accidents and severity of injuries in those accidents suffered by those who took the class as compared with the same age group who did not.

The cost is $15 for AARP members and $20 for non members. State law requires insurance companies to give a discount to those having taken the class, which is valid for three years. Jane and Bud Romberg have been teaching this program for the past 21 years. Call 970-879-0064 for more information or to register.
