Senior Alliance to Host Safe Driving Meeting Via Zoom on Monday

The Palisades Senior Alliance will hold its monthly meeting via Zoom on Monday, March 22, at 10:30 a.m. The topic will be “Safe Driving: DMV, COVID and Seniors.”

This is a free event, but one must register in advance, by emailing: Within 24 hours, you will receive an acknowledgement of the registration and the Zoom link will be sent at 9 a.m. on March 22.

Making her fourth appearance as guest speaker will be Tressa Thompson, Senior Driver Ombudsman at the California Department of Motor Vehicles. Senior Alliance attendees always appreciate her informative presentations and willingness to engage.

The DMV’s Senior Driver Ombudsman Program was established to help all drivers maintain their driving independence for as long as they can do so safely. The program strives to address specific concerns of senior drivers, including education and training, and to assist as a liaison to ensure that senior drivers are treated fairly and consistently when faced with changes in physical, visual and/or mental abilities. Thompson will also cover DMV policy changes under COVID.

There will be closed-captioning on Zoom and a simultaneous transcript will run in the chat box during the program.

On the Palisades Senior Alliance website (, one can find a list of upcoming webinars that might be of interest, such as “The Stanford Prison Experiment 50 Years Later,” with Philip Zimbardo on April 6, presented by the Stanford Historical Society and “Hour Stories – Stories Written in an Hour,” organized by the Renaissance Society of Sacramento and Friendship Force Sacramento on April 12.

Board members of the Palisades Alliance for Seniors include Esther Brudo, Therese Funk, Claude Goodrich, Iris Kaphan, Steve Lantz, Christine Odionu, Ron Segall and Karen Stigler.
