Town-sponsored defensive driving courses are scheduled for Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6 to 9 p.m. on April 9-11 and 23-25, May 21-23, and June 18-20 at the town of Greece Police Headquarters, 6 Vince Tofany Blvd., Rochester.
Greece residents must attend both sessions to complete the course. Each session is limited to 20 participants. All course material questions will be covered during the sessions.
The DMV defines defensive driving as a safe driving technique that all drivers should use, which includes looking ahead and expecting the unexpected, controlling speed, maintaining a safe following distance, preparing for the reactions of other drivers, driving safely for weather and/or road conditions, being alert and distraction-free, and watching and respecting other drivers.
Participants can reduce their fines associated with a traffic ticket, offset ticket points on their driving record, prevent or reinstate a suspended driver’s license, and receive an insurance rate reduction.
“I am happy to report that our first two defensive driving course sessions for February and March booked up very quickly,” Supervisor Bill Reilich said. “I was excited to see so many residents show interest in these town-sponsored courses.”
Registration costs $17 either online or in person at the town of Greece Community Center, 3 Vince Tofany Blvd., Rochester. Accepted forms of in-person payment are cash, check and credit card. The website accepts Visa, Mastercard and Discover.
