Resources for Older Drivers
To stop driving is a complicated decision for anyone to make. For senior citizens, it can lead to feelings of a loss of freedom and independence. There are also benefits to not driving, however; it can mean freedom from the concerns of fast moving traffic, icy roads in the winter, and the costs of maintaining a vehicle.
