Richland Public Health celebrated a milestone Tuesday as it presented the AARP Driver Safety Program for the 10th year.

Health educator Reed Richmond says it's the nation's first and largest classroom refresher course for motorists age 50 and older. He says it brings them up-to-date on anything that's changed in the driving experience since they started driving, as well as trying to keep them driving safely for many more years.

Those who take the class have a chance to get an insurance discount but the big thing Richmond says is emphasized is the safety aspect so seniors can learn ways to compensate for age-related changes that affect everyone.
