AARP safe driving class to be held at the Derby Public Library

Learn about changes in driving issues

DERBY — The Public Library has scheduled an AARP Driver Safety Class from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. April 10. 
The cost is $12 for AARP members and $14 for non-members.
Cars have changed and so have traffic rules, driving conditions, and the roads to travel, organizers said in a statement.
"This refresher course is designed for drivers 50 and over to brush up on their driving skills. No written tests, no road tests, and no information will be given to the Department of Motor Vehicles," the statement said.  "Participants will learn how to drive more defensively and may save up to 10 percent on their present auto liability insurance," the statement said.
Space is limited and registration is required.
Participants may bring a bag lunch. Coffee and dessert will be provided. For more information, stop by the Library at 313 Elizabeth St. or call 203 736-1482 or visit

Driving is a huge responsibility that must be learned in steps and practiced over and over. We have to drive safely, obey the traffic laws, and respect the rights of other drivers. Not only should we concentrate on our own driving, we should also be well aware of the other vehicles around us. Driving safely also includes how and where we park our car. Passengers in our car put their safety in our hands and expect us to drive safe as well.

We shouldn't be stressed, tired, or distracted; driving should be our only focus. We need to be both mentally and physically capable of controlling our vehicle.

It is our responsibility, as a driver, to know the laws governing driving privileges. driver improvement course will helps us a lot.

Remember, driving is a privilege, NOT a right. Finally, safe driving requires a good attitude.
