John Mars, 78, second from right, and his wife Gertrude Mars, 84, raise their arms during a physical ability portion of AARP Driver Safety Class geared for older drivers Thursday at the Golden Gate Community Center. The participants did short stretches as they watched a video that explained how good physical fitness helps with safe driving. State driver statistics show the number of elderly drivers has increased since 2006, nearly doubling for the 91-100 group in Collier, which has 1,473 drivers now. It's up nearly 4,000 for Collier drivers 81 to 90, and also up in Lee for both groups.
