Assessing How Aging Can Affect Your Driving

Do you…

  • Feel confused by traffic signs, and people and cars in traffic?
  • Take medicine that makes you sleepy?
  • Get dizzy, or have seizures or losses of consciousness?
  • React slowly to normal driving situations?

If you said “Yes” to any of these questions, you should…

  • Ask your doctor if your health or side effects from your medicine can affect your driving.
  • Take routes that you know.
  • Try to drive during the day (avoid rush hour).
  • Keep a safe distance between you and the car ahead of you.
  • Always scan the road while you are driving so that you are ready for any problems and can plan your actions.
