There have been many changes in cars and roadways to improve driver safety. Join James Murray, AARP Driver Safety instructor for a discussion about changes to improve driving, including all the technology being put into cars and our ability to adapt or to use it most effectively. Topics will include best practices for managing traffic patterns, congested environments and highway situations as well as the physical changes that can play a role in being the best driver on the roads. Michelle Lantaigne, OT, Baystate Rehabilitation Care, will discuss tips for adapting to our physical changes and when intervention is needed to effectively maneuver today’s roadways.
