Distracted Driving Awareness Month
April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month , which lines up well for us to review the following safe driving tips from AARP . They apply to everyone , from the newest drivers to older adults who may notice driving becoming more difficult over time .
Stay focused . Manage non-driving tasks before getting on the road . For example , eating , drinking , programming GPS , or securing a pet in the vehicle should be done before leaving for the destination . Pull over to talk – hands-free phone technology can still take our minds off the road . Don ’ t drive drowsy . Coffee is not always the answer ! Consider the time of day when making travel plans . If we can avoid drowsy driving , a common safety issue late at night , we can improve the odds of arriving at our destination safely . Changes that happen with age may affect our ability to drive safely , including vision loss , medical conditions , and increased anxiety . Recognizing when it may be time to stop driving is an upsetting decision , but it is a vitally important one . If you or your senior loved one are struggling with a loss of independence due to driving restrictions , At Home Senior Care can help ! Call us at 802-768-8565 or visit athomeseniors . net for more information .
