Learn more about today's vehicle technologies and how to use them. AARP Driver Safety teamed up with The Hartford to develop Smart DriverTEK, a workshop to help provide drivers with the proper tools to navigate modern vehicle technology.

The next workshop will be offered at Red Wing Community Education at 2451 Eagle Ridge Drive from 1-2:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 12, with a second session 6:30-8 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 25. The 90-minute workshops are led by Arlene Ruth, who is one of five trainers in the state selected for the pilot project.
