Driver safety class fun, useful

I attended a fun class recently. It was the AARP Driver Safety course. Our instructor, Rod Gross, an Auburn volunteer, made the class fun, invited questions and comments along the way and helped to build our confidence. Because he created a safe atmosphere, we felt encouraged to ask questions that sometimes revealed our bad habits or attitudes. We had good laughs together at our common mistakes and concerns. Many people take the class to get a discount on their car insurance. I did that in the past. But, I recently switched my car insurance because of a discount through my university and was already maxed out with discounts. So, this time, I took the class because I was aware that I had developed some bad habits over the years (53 of driving!) and that a refresher course would be good for me and the other drivers on my roads! I highly recommend the Driver Safety program for older drivers, whether you can get an insurance discount or not. LindaLou Haines, Colfax
