THE county's Institute of Advanced Motorists is holding its final Older Driver Day of the year next month.

Aimed at restoring older drivers' confidence, the course will cover a range of topics – such as hazard awareness, speed, observation and how to stay safe on the road.

People can take advantage of a short assessed drive – in their own car – by a qualified advanced driving observer and are given friendly help and advice on their performance.

The event takes place on Friday September 12 in Ross-on-Wye and costs £15 but places are limited.

Call 01432 840835 to reserve a place or email safer-drivers@iam-herefordshire.org.uk

I shall be avoiding Ross on this day.
I have things to do and I don't want to be stuck behind this lot all pottering along at 5 miles an hour and not looking in their mirrors and failing to indicate and taking ages to park.

When I use the disabled spaces at Morrisons and get my mobility scooter out of the back of me car to squeeze me 27 stone frame into to go and buy a weeks supply of adult nappies form the chemist in town I do not want to have to wait for ages behind the elderly.
One of my Greyhounds in the back of the car may well want to make a Jimmy Riddle or number two and they like to go by the bike racks, hence the use of Morrisons car park, and I do not want to be clearing that out of the back of the car!
