Senior Drivers safety

Submitted By Shawn Fong

Dedicated to keep seniors drive safely, a workshop will be held in Fremont Main Library, focussing on road safety topics for seniors. The workshop will discuss ways to maintain driving skills with age, know when and how to change driving behaviors to stay safe. License renewal and DMV re-examinations will also be discussed.

The workshop will be facilitated by speakers Colleen Campbell, Senior Injury Prevention Coordinator; Alameda County Public Health Veronica Conley; Community Outreach Ombudsman, Department of Motor Vehicles and representatives from community transportation programs. Designed for older adults, their family members, and service providers who work with seniors, the program requires no reservations.

Refreshments will be provided. To request accommodation, contact branch library at least seven working days prior to the event. The library may photograph or videotape you for library promotional purposes. Notify library staff if you do not wish to be photographed.
