Staying safe, staying mobile

Staying mobile is important to the lifestyle of today's seniors. Growing older doesn't mean you have to give up driving. No one loses his or her driver's licence solely because of age.
As we get older, we change. And while the years following the age of 50 can be wonderful, some of us become hard of hearing, others need corrective lenses, and our reflexes may slow down.
Drivers should learn to recognize individual changes and adjust their driving habits accordingly. This brochure outlines some warning signs that could lead to unsafe driving and suggests steps that can be taken to keep you and other road users safe while you're behind the wheel.
Ontario's roads are among the safest in North America so it's important that every road user makes road safety a personal responsibility. If you're a senior driver, you may benefit from taking a driving course to help you stay on the road as long as you can.
