“Seniors on the Road will build knowledge and under-standing of road safety for older members of our community,” Deputy Mayor Kevin Cardew said.

The free information session will be held at the Atherton International Club on Thursday 23 February from 9.30am-11.30am.

Transport and Main Roads Customer Services Branch Northern Regional Director Adam Ainsworth said the road safety team would present a range of information to assist the region’s older drivers.

“At the session, we will ad-dress common concerns that many older drivers face, including understanding new road rules and safe driving behaviours,” he said.

“We will also provide tips and support to people who are looking at transitioning away from driving.

Attendees will also be shown how to access support for TMR online services and apps.

Places are limited so book by going to or by calling 1300 362 242.
