You may be concerned about your mom or dad driving, but as a group, senior drivers are actually among the safest on the road today. Compared with others, they are less likely to speed or drive after drinking, and more likely to buckle their safety belts.
And as your parents or other seniors in your life age, you can help senior drivers maintain mobility by initiating a conversation about safe driving, chauffeuring them when you can or helping them become familiar with public transportation options.
This can be a difficult issue, and AAA has tools and resources you can use to effectively and compassionately help the senior drivers in your life. Before starting a conversation about driving, know the facts about older drivers and how you can assist them.
