Meet the New AARP Kansas Driver Safety State Coordinator

AARP Kansas is pleased to welcome Norman Dahlstrom, of Wichita, as the new state coordinator of the Driver Safety Program in Kansas. As state coordinator, Dahlstrom will organize and oversee all of the volunteer driver safety instructors who teach courses in cities and towns all across the state.

Dahlstrom is a retired engineer and business owner who also worked for Boeing in its Shuttle Carrier and Air Force One 747 Conversion divisions. He has been with the Driver Safety program in a variety of capacities since 2006.

AARP’s Driver Safety Program was created in 1979 to help older drivers adjust to age-related and cognitive physical changes. While teaching defensive driving techniques to participants, the AARP Driver Safety Program course focuses on driving infractions such as failure to yield the right-of-way, improper turning and incorrect lane changing that particularly affect older drivers. Generally, older drivers have problems in driving situations that require quick responses, full vision and interaction with other drivers. The program teaches participants how to adjust their driving in response to these changes.

In addition to learning how to become a better driver as one ages, the course has an added benefit for Kansas drivers as well as those in 35 other states. Kansas and the other states passed laws that mandate automobile insurance discounts to those who participate in the course.

The course is also offered online, which makes it more accessible and appealing to the active and busy lifestyles of today’s course participants.

Good luck Norman, we’re happy to have you onboard!
