AARP Appoints New Driver Safety Coordinator for Vermont
The nation’s first and largest refresher course for drivers age 50 and older has new leader
David Peters of Lake Elmore has been named state coordinator for the AARP Driver Safety Program. The program is the nation’s first and largest refresher course for drivers age 50 and older and has helped millions of drivers remain safe on today’s roads. AARP has offered the course in the classroom for 25 years and it’s available in towns across Vermont.
Peters, a former dean of students at Genesee Community College and a retired captain in the U.S. Naval Reserve, has been involved in the Driver Safety Program for more than six years. He began as an instructor in the Central Vermont area and most recently served as assistant state coordinator and district coordinator.
Peters succeeds Ed Koenemann of Montpelier who has run the program for the past six years and will remain an instructor. The program offers classes across the state throughout the year as well as an online course.
