Things You Should Know if You're an Older Driver

Driving is something we assume most people can do with ease. But, as we age, driving can become more dangerous and something that may require more effort. Older drivers usually want to stay on the road as long as possible, and as long as they're safe that should be our goal. The following tips will keep older drivers on the road longer:

  • Get your vision and hearing checked yearly. These senses tend to decline as we age but are very important in order to drive safely. Most issues can be fixed easily if found early.
  • Understand your medications. The side effects may affect your driving. Don't drive if you've recently taken a pill that causes drowsiness or dizziness.
  • Be aware of driving conditions. If you have trouble seeing at night then you should stick to driving during the day.
  • It may be best to take a driving refresher course. This may help build confidence in your driving skills.
