***RESCHEDULED FROM SEPTEMBER! Do you sometime wonder why your seatbelts suddenly tighten or why your car automatically slows down when you approach a car ahead of you? Are you curious about vehicle safety technology that can help keep you safer and driving on the road longer? This 90-minute workshop is an easy, interactive way to help people over 50 learn about the safety technology in their current or future car. During this session, you will learn about nine key safety features including smart headlights for safer night driving, blind-spot detection, forward-collision warning systems and more.
