Safer driving for seniors

Safer driving for seniors is the topic of a interactive discussion being held at the Sooke Legion on March 18.

Safer driving for seniors is the topic of a interactive discussion being held at the Sooke Legion on March 18.

The discussion opens up with such questions as:

• Are senior drivers being unfairly targeted?

• Are DriveABLE assessments unfair for seniors with limited or no experience using a computer?

• How to tell when it’s time to hang up the car keys.

• Should restricted licences be used instead of outright cancelling someone’s licence?

The Sooke branch of the B.C. Pensioners’ and Seniors’ Organization is bringing in Alan Perry, project coordinator for the Capital Regional District’s Traffic Safety Commission and Stakeholder Relations Specialist in the office of the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles to speak on these issues. Perry is also a popular host on C-Fax 1070 Radio. He will lead the discussion and will tackle those thorny issues of seniors’ driving, from speeding to cyclists, impaired drivers to pedestrians. He will seek your thoughts on what you think needs to be done to make our roads safer.

Come prepared with your questions and thoughts.

Safer Driving for Seniors takes place at 1 p.m. on Monday, March  18 at the Sooke Legion on Eustace Road. Everyone is welcome.
