The AARP driving course gives members of the American Association of Retired Persons the opportunity to revisit their driving skills and update them on latest road trends and road rules.

According to statistics, 70% of road accidents involve drivers age 55 years old and above.

(I'm not sure I completely believe that number; statistics can be manipulated to say just about anything you want! It's more likely young people that have the highest percentage of accidents, but...)

Today, highways are becoming more dangerous because of huge and over speeding vehicles driven by drivers who may be reckless, or deliberately driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs.

The road can be quite threatening. Even more so when the physical limitations that come with aging start to get in the way of safe driving.
