Twenty senior citizens, with driving experience ranging from 50 to 65 years, attended Wednesday's AARP Driver Safety Program at the Mansfield-Ontario-Richland County Health Department.

Health Educator Reed Richmond says the four-hour refresher course focuses on the difficulties normally good drivers develop as they age, such as vision or hearing reductions.

And the course, which has been conducted several times a year for many years, does get results.

Wednesday's class was free to military veterans as part of an A-A-R-P promotion in November, the month in which Veteran's Day falls.

Ten veterans attended, with most of the others spouses of veterans. 

Completing the class makes most participants eligible for car insurance discounts.
