Older Driver Forum - FREE online webinar

How to resolve some of the difficult conversations for older drivers following Lockdown


One of the groups most isolated by lockdown is also the most at risk on Gloucestershire’s roads, once lockdown lifts. That is according to Gloucestershire’s Older Drivers Forum, which suggests that drivers are more at risk of serious collisions as they age, due to the pressures added by the Covid-19 lockdown.

As England entered its second lockdown of 2020, The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner  worked alongside Gloucestershire Constabulary and Gloucestershire Older Drivers Forum as part of its commitment to Safe and Social Roads – a priority of PCC Martin Surl’s latest Police and Crime Plan.

These groups have already hosted three FREE online webinars offering support to families concerned about the driving abilities of older relatives, or for those drivers feeling like they are losing confidence behind the wheel. These were held on 17th, 19th and 21st November.

Following the success of the first three seminars, a fourth FREE online webinar will be held on Saturday 19th December, from 11:00-12:00am. The Webinar will be run via Zoom, and you can register at https://olderdriversforum.com/gloucestershire-events
