Road Safety for Seniors

At the last meeting of EuroSCUG (Eurobodalla Computer Users Group) the guest speaker was Tracey McClintock, Road User Safety Project Officer for Roads and Maritime Services (RMS). Tracey’s presentation covered safer driving habits, particularly for seniors. She mentioned how health issues can impact on driver safety, mobility, and pedestrian safety, and outlined the rules about driver licensing at 75 and 85 years of age.

Tracey showed videos on driver safety, and initiated discussion on the top 10 misunderstood road rules. She provided links to various relevant websites, and distributed some booklets on road safety, guides to older driving licensing, and the top 10 misunderstood road rules, all publications issued by RMS and Transport for NSW.

After morning tea, small groups covered Cloud Storage, Typing Tricks, and Family History. The Help Desk was also popular.

At EuroSCUG’s next meeting, at 10am on Wednesday 3rd October, at Moruya Golf Club, several speakers will each present a short session covering such topics as getting the most out of your browser, genealogy update, and apps such as Messenger, Emergency, MedAdvisor, and Facebook.

A Help Desk will be available to provide assistance with hardware or software problems.

EuroSCUG is a group of seniors sharing computer experiences and friendship. Members meet at 10am on the first Wednesday of the month at Moruya Golf Club, and local area groups meet regularly in towns along the Eurobodalla. Monthly tablet groups (iPad and Android) are also held.

To ease the burden on the small group of volunteer presenters, and allow them to take well earned breaks, the group is always looking for more volunteers to share their computer expertise.
