Senior Program

You and the Road

Accident Awareness has successfully started a new program targeting mature pedestrians and drivers of mature age.

This program is called “You and the Road” and consists of three parts:

· The Pedestrian Impact
· Continuing to Drive
· Walking to Drive

Part 1: The Pedestrian Impact

With the number of pedestrians being struck and injured, or worse, Accident Awareness has developed a program that incorporates all the main reasons for this tragedy. Some of the points discussed are:

· the changes in traffic signals
· your rights when crossing at a lighted intersection
· pedestrian cell phone use
· walking through parking lots
· type of clothing to wear at night
· J walking.

These are but a few of the points discussed during this one hour multi- media presentation.

Part 2: Continuing the Drive

Being a mature, safe driver today means that you must continue your learning skills when driving a motor vehicle. You have to assess and adapt to vehicle changes and also your physical changes. This one hour multi-media event targets many changes that have happened over the years.

Some of the topics discussed include:

· Update on the Rules of the Road (Ontario Highway Traffic Act)
· Use of Seat Belts
· Strategies of Parking
· Strategies of Reversing
· The Staged Collision
· Seat, mirrors positioning and hands on wheel
· Emergency vehicles and Tow trucks
· Left turns
· Traffic signals
· Speed

Part 3:  Walking to Drive

This event combines important facts from the Pedestrian Impact and Continuing to Drive presentations. It is a one hour program and some of the topics mentioned include:

· Wearing seat belts
· The pedestrian and the countdown traffic signal
· The Staged Collision
· Parking & reversing
· The Highway Traffic Act
· Walking at night
· Walking in bad weather
· Left turns
· Renewing your licence
· J walking

Our program is presented by fully qualified Reconstructionists who have specialised in the investigation of pedestrian fatalities, motor vehicle fatalities and the enforcement of the Ontario Highway Traffic Act.

NOTE THAT ALL EVENTS ARE COMPLETELY FUNDED BY THE INSURANCE BUREAU OF CANADA.
