The truth about DWO (Driving While Older)
November 18, 2011
Admit it: when you see granny on the road, you keep your distance. But is she really a four-wheeled menace or just a victim of bad PR?
Although age brings inevitable physical and mental changes, such as weaker eyesight and slower reflexes, it doesn’t automatically turn all drivers into bad drivers. Experience and compensating strategies can go a long way toward keeping older drivers safe.
With the first baby boomers turning 65 this year, older drivers are getting more attention. So whether you fall into that category or have parents who do, learn what it means to DWO (drive while older) and boost safety and independence for years to come.
