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.
Excerpts from article:
According to AAA (American Automobile Association)
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.
