State launches holiday safe-driving campaign

Cars travel the Pennsylvania Turnpike in this Aug. 29, 2018, photo. Pennsylvania has launched a holiday safe-driving campaign, even as it is encouraging residents not to travel.

Seniors for Safe Driving, a mature driver improvement course, has scheduled several sessions in Lawrence County this month and during the summer.

The program is designed to help drivers understand how aging affects their driving abilities. Those who take the course will receive a minimum of 5 percent discount on their auto insurance for three years, under a state mandate.

The standard course is for first-time participants and a refresher course for repeat attendees are available.

The times, dates and locations of the course locally are:

•First Presbyterian Recreation Center, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. May 19, and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. July 21.

•New Wilmington United Methodist Church in New Wilmington, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. June 17, and 9 a.m to 1 p.m. Aug. 19.

•Lawrence County Learning Center, in the Central Building on South Mercer Street, 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. June 11.

To register, applicants may call (800) 559-4880 or (724) 283-8845, or they may register online at
