Driving Safe: Tips and Tools for the Senior Driver

An important article that provides senior drivers and their families with various tips and tools to help evaluate current driving abilities.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 
PRLog (Press Release) - Aug. 9, 2011 - The Society of Certified Senior Advisors has released this very important article which provides senior drivers and their families with various tips and tools to help evaluate current driving abilities. Senior driving is a critical subject and knowing when it’s time to consider safety courses for seniors is imperative. You don’t want to wait until an accident has happened, especially one that could have been prevented with a few safety precautions.

Excerpts from article:

According to AAA (American Automobile Association), “Experts agree that the driving ability generally begins to deteriorate at age 55.” Of course, everyone is different, but certain physical limitations like decreased neck flexibility and deteriorating eyesight begin to surface at about that age.

AAA notes the following as signs of diminished capacity for driving safety:
•  Having a series of minor accidents or near misses.
•  Having wandering thoughts or being unable to concentrate.
•  Being unable to read ordinary road signs.
•  Getting lost on familiar roads.
•  Having other drivers honk at you frequently.
•  Being spoken to about your driving by police, family, and friends.

If a senior loved one in your life is at the point where it may be unsafe to be behind the wheel, be sensitive. Having a driver’s license is more than just the ability to drive a car; it is also a symbol of freedom and self-sufficiency. Most people do not give up the right to drive willingly, even if he or she would agree that driving has become more difficult.
