Helping senior citizens drive

May 26, 2007

The Governor's Office of Highway Safety wants to help senior citizens freshen up on their driving skills.

The group started a program this month called Car Fit. It's aimed at people 55 and over.

Instructors will travel the state giving seniors a refresher on important driving and safety tips.

Organizers say seniors don't react as quickly as younger drivers when there's extra traffic on the roads. The program will also give out booster seats for seniors who need them. 

For more information, you can contact the Governor's office toll free at 1-888-420-0767.
