Driving as you age can become more difficult, especially under certain conditions. Here are some tips to being a safe driver.
Evaluate Driving Skills
Have a driving rehabilitation specialist, occupational therapist, or other trained professional check your driving skills.
Get your hearing checked every three years after age 50. Discuss concerns about hearing with your doctor. Keep the inside of the car quiet while driving.
Evaluate Medication and Health
Ask your doctor if any medicine or health problems will affect driving abilities.
