Join us for FREE online Road Safety workshops for senior road users

Merseyside Road Safety Partnership are offering FREE online workshops for senior road users aged 60 and over. The workshops are designed to support senior road users to keep them safe as drivers, riders, pedestrians and public transport users.

As we get older our reflexes can start to slow and we may get aches and pains that we never had before. We may be more susceptible to falling or have less energy to get out and about. The ageing process is different for each individual, with some 70 year olds feeling fitter and more active compared to someone in their 60s.

The workshops - split into three online sessions called Seeing, Doing, and Thinking - focus on raising awareness of road safety issues for the over 60 age group who are becoming increasingly over-represented in casualty statistics as drivers, riders, passengers and pedestrians.

Sessions will take place on 16, 23 and 30 September at 10am and will be delivered by our friendly road safety team and explore how age may affect our vision, our reactions and our physical abilities.
