National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Says by 2020 More than 40 Million Drivers Will be Age 65 or Older

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration predicts that by 2020, more than 40 million drivers will be age 65 or older. That is why officials are urging older drivers in Missouri and around the nation to update their defensive-driving skills. Craig Eichelman with AARP Missouri recently required everyone in his office to take a defensive-driving course.

It also updates drivers on the rules of the road and how to assess their driving skills. For the month of November, the course online or in person is free to all veterans
