Changing Your Driving Habits as You Get Older

Changing Your Driving Habits as You Get Older

Adapt your driving habits as you age.  

When we get older, our ability to do certain activities begins to fade. For many senior motorists on the road, this may not be a realization. However, as we age, our driving habits need to adapt to our current skills. Not only does this help to keep ourselves and others safe on the roads, but it can prevent accidents and costly insurance rates.

Here are just a few things to do as you age and continue to drive:

  • Get your hearing checked out. If your hearing is declining, consider a hearing aid or another assistant on the road.
  • Test your eyesight often. Our eyesight fades with age, so it’s important that we keep on top of their condition. If you need glasses, be sure to wear them when behind the wheel.
  • Ask your doctor if any health condition or medication that you’re taking could impact your ability to drive.
  • Avoid driving at high-peak times on the road, such as rush hour before and after the workday. This is when there is a high volume of vehicles on the road and tensions run high.
  • Consider driving only during the day. Avoid driving at dusk and at night when visibility is low.
  • Drive slower than you would usually. This helps to give you ample time to react.
  • Leave plenty of room between yourself and the vehicle in front of you.
  • Make full use of mirrors, windshield wipers, lights, and other car features.

Safe driving habits and quality auto insurance can help to keep you safe on the roads. Contact the professionals at Lloyd S. Berkett Insurance Agency for your reliable coverage.
