What should I do now to become an "older driver"?

April 1, 2016

Did you know that on average, we outlive our safe driving career by 7-10 years?  That's a pretty amazing statistic.  Like preparing financially for the day you retire, it is never too early to start preparing for the day you finally achieve the esteemed title of older driver.

Here are three helpful steps to begin taking today to help extend our safe driving career & avoid problems later in life if you ever find yourself forced to give up your keys.

  1. Exercise Regularly
    We all know that physical exercise is good for us, regardless of our age.  But did you know that for older adults, there exists a very strong correlation between physical exercise and safe driving?
  2. Keep your Mind Sharp
    In its simplest terms, driving requires the involvement of two disciplines:  physical abilities (sight, flexibility, reaction time, etc), and our cognitive abilities (memory and executive functioning).
  3. Control Diabetes
    Symptoms or complications of diabetes make it difficult to remain a safe driver.

General George S. Patton said "a good plan implemented today is better than an excellent plan implemented tomorrow".  Why wait?
