Burns to sponsor safe driving class at Community Center of Cambria County

EBENSBURG, March 2 – State Rep. Frank Burns, D-Cambria, will host a Seniors for Safe Driving at the Community Arts Center of Cambria County on Friday, March 31.

“Seniors have been very enthusiastic and receptive toward this class, so I continue to host it,” Burns said. “My office will take any opportunity to help our seniors save money and ensure their safety behind the wheel.”

The PennDOT-approved course allows mature drivers 55 or older to refresh existing driving techniques and cultivate a positive attitude toward the road. There will be no on-the-road driving or in-class testing; this will only be classroom instruction. Burns also said the course will help older drivers improve their awareness.

Participating seniors will receive a 5% discount on their automobile insurance. The state-mandated discount is one of the benefits of the $16 class, which is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday, March 31, at the Community Arts Center of Cambria County, 1217 Menoher Blvd. in Johnstown.

Interested participants must RSVP by Friday, March 24 by calling Burns’ district office at (814) 472-8021 and providing their driver’s license number.
