''Safer Driving @ 60+'' course a success

19 March 2018

Story from Road Safety GB.

More than 30 older drivers from South Yorkshire have taken part in a free course held in Sheffield, in a bid to keep them driving safely for longer.

This was the third Safer Driving @ 60+  course run by the South Yorkshire Safer Roads Partnership (SYSRP), to help older drivers brush up on their Highway Code and driving skills.

The day-long course raises awareness of the ‘four main causes’ of fatal road traffic collisions:

  • drink and drug driving
  • speed
  • not wearing a seatbelt
  • using a mobile phone while driving
