Seniors can help prolong their driving years by attending educational classes, learning how to sharpen their reflexes, and learning how to make adjustments to their cars in order to obtain a more comfortable fit. To help maturing drivers, AAA Alabama offers numerous traffic safety and educational programs such as:
These programs are available at your local branch or online and many are free to members and non-members alike.
Wish you could react quicker, think faster, focus better, and reduce your crash risk while driving on the road, or that you were more aware of other vehicles, street signs, and road conditions?
The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety has partnered with Posit Science®, the leading provider of clinically proven brain fitness programs, to bring you Drivesharp™, a brain fitness training program designed to help older adults see more of their surroundings, react faster, and reduce their risk of an at-fault accident.
To help maturing drivers tune up their driving skills and refresh their knowledge of the rules of the road, AAA offers mature driver improvement instruction.
This educational program offers adults age 55 and older the opportunity to check how well their personal vehicles “fit” them. Technicians guide participants through a 12-point checklist to correctly adjust mirror positions, the distance between chest and steering wheel, and other vehicle features.
CarFit also provides information on community-specific resources to help enhance your safety as a driver and increase your mobility in the community. There is no charge to attend the event, but registration is required.
