As part of my responsibilities with the Red Cross, I was required to take the state's defensive driving course.  The cost is only $15 and the Red Cross picked up the cost because they mandated it.  As a result, my insurance premiums went down.  It's the first time in 50 years I have taken a driving education course and although much of it is review, I learned a lot of useful information. 

 

The one thing I did learn that was quite interesting was that when one drives the posted speed limit, especially in town, I spend a lot less time sitting at traffic lights.  I also notice that the same cars at the lights that whizzed past me have had to wait for me to catch up.  :)

 

Just a recommendation for anyone out there that might be interested.  The drop in my insurance premiums allowed me to up my liability coverage as well.  Costs me the same, but if I am in need, it's a big help.

I did the State Defensive Driving Course and it cost the Red Cross $15.  Even at that price, I would have paid for it myself.  It's a good course.
