Keep Alert To Changes
Everyone wants to
maintain their ability
to go where they
want, when they
want, especially as
they grow older
and enjoy more
leisure time.
Has this happened
to you?
A friend or family member has expressed concern about your driving.
You sometimes get lost while driving on routes that were once familiar.
You have been pulled over by a police officer and warned about your poor driving behavior, even if you didn't get a ticket.
You have had several moving violations, near misses or actual crashes in the last three years.
Your doctor or other health caregiver has advised you to restrict or stop driving.
What you can do
Be aware of your physical limitations and how they may affect your driving.
Listen to what people tell you who know you best and care about you most.
Discuss driving with your doctor - he or she can evaluate the interactions and side effects of all the medications you may be taking.
Refresh your knowledge of safe driving practices and learn about new traffic control and roadway design features through a mature driver class.
Begin planning for alternative ways of meeting your transportation needs. Learn about transportation options in your community, then try them out to see which options work best for you.
