Driver Safety

New technology is rapidly changing your car, with features such as drowsy driver alerts and forward-collision warnings.
Tennessee drivers 55 and older can get a three-year discount on their auto insurance if they take the AARP Smart Driver class and maintain a safe driving record. Discounts typically vary from 5 to 10 percent off.
Keep up with the latest car technologies, learn safety tips and potentially save money. Older drivers who complete the course could be eligible for a three-year reduction on their car insurance.

The IMPROVE Act, a policy proposed by Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam, has passed the state legislature. This bill, which became law on July 1, 2017, will have a significant impact on the entire state. The main premise behind the IMPROVE Act is to generate funding for transportation infrastructure projects, many of which are critical to the viability of rural communities across the state.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. - In the last 10 years, distracted driving was to blame for more than 172,000 accidents on Tennessee roadways, according to the Tennessee Department of Safety. Experts believe that number is actually higher, with not everyone reporting their distraction at the time of an accident. April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month and AARP Tennessee is reminding Tennesseans about the importance of paying attention when behind the wheel. George Coleman, state coordinator for AARP Tennessee, teaches safe-driving classes in the Memphis area.
