Older Adult Driver Safety Week

Sunday, December 5 - Saturday, December 11, 12:00 am

Older Driver Safety Awareness Week highlights the vital role that mobility and transportation play to keep older adults active in their communities. Remaining active for as long as possible is essential to the independence of older adults. Driving a vehicle helps them to do this. As adults age, however, they experience vision and hearing loss. They may also experience a decline in cognition. These health issues make it unsafe to drive. Older drivers are twice as likely to have a medical problem that makes it difficult to travel.*
