Your Driving Skills

By Carol Levine, author, AARP’s Navigating Your Later Years for Dummies

Adapted from an article by Carol Levine, author, AARP’s Navigating Your Later Years for Dummies. 6/17/19 What can you do when your driving skills are not as sharp as they used to be.

Our reflexes are not as quick as we are gracefully greying. Our vision and distance perception are not as keen. Our bodies are less flexible. Here are some suggestions to keep you safe, as you continue driving:

  1. Drive less at night.
  2. Drive less in bad weather.
  3. Try to avoid heavy traffic.
  4. Slow down when you are driving.
  5. If you are on medications that warn, “do not operate heavy machinery while taking this drug,” do not forget that a car is heavy machinery.
  6. Take a safe driving course if you are concerned.
  7. In addition, many states offer insurance discounts if you complete the course.
