Narrative:

The Camarillo Police Department will be hosting a Senior Citizen Driver's Education Class.

 

The Senior Citizen Driver's Education Class is a cooperative effort between the Camarillo Health Care District, Camarillo Police Department, Department of Motor Vehicles, and senior drivers.

 

In an attempt to remain proactive and not reactive, the Senior Citizen Driver's Education Class is designed to help senior drivers understand how age related issues could affect a person's ability to drive safely. The Senior Citizen Driver's Education Class will offer lecture on issues related to senior citizen drivers, advice on how to be a safer driver, information for caregivers, alternate forms of transportation and community resources available to seniors.  Our goal is to raise awareness and reduce the number of senior-related injuries and deaths due to traffic collisions.

 

To date, we have held seven classes since August of 2010 with approximately 150 students attending.

 

Senior Drivers and / or their caregivers are encouraged to attend the class.  For reservations, call MaryGay San Jose at the Camarillo Police Department at (805) 388-5155.  There is no charge to attend the program.
