The Greensboro Police Department and United Services for Older Adults are sponsoring a program to teach senior citizens traffic safety.

Two training sessions are to be held in November for people interested in teaching the program.The first training session will be Friday, and the second Monday, Nov. 26. Both will be 9:30 a.m.-noon at United Services for Older Adults, 301 E. Washington St.

The first part of each session is ``Safety Steps for Pedestrians,' which features ``defensive walking.' After a break and a snack, the second part of the session is ``Safe Rides for Long Lives.' The program has been developed by the American Association of Retired Persons, which says nine out of 10 older drivers don't wear seat belts.

For more information, call officer Tony Aprile at 373-2216 or Susan Russell at 373-4816.
