Secretary Benson shares resources for National Older Driver Safety Awareness Week

Ahead of National Older Driver Safety Awareness Week – Dec. 6-10 – Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson encourages residents of all ages to take advantage of state resources for safe driving.

“These resources help Michiganders continue to drive safely as they age and access other transportation when they stop driving so they can continue to enjoy their independence and our great state,” said Benson.

Residents can learn more at Michigan.gov/AgingDriver, which was designed for easy navigation among resources to help aging drivers. During National Older Driver Safety Awareness Week, the site will feature information on the following topics:
