Elderly Driving Tips
 
There are countless senior drivers on the road today, some of which could use some tips to help make the road a safer place. With more vehicles on the road than ever before, driving can be difficult for people with slower reaction times. Read ahead for some tips for older drivers.
 
It’s important to monitor your own health. Your vision and hearing get worse as you age so it’s important to get checked up regularly so you can be at the top of your game behind the wheel.
 
You should turn right whenever possible. A right turn is less dangerous and can really help lower your risk of getting into an accident.
 
Considering your reaction time worsens as you age, its extra important that senior citizens are free of any potential distractions when they’re driving their vehicle. This means cell phones, eating and changing the radio.
 
Finally, you have to make some adjustments to your vehicle to make it easier to drive and more comfortable. If you’re feeling strained when you drive, take it into a dealership to see if they can fit the vehicle more to your liking.
