It is common for senior citizens to give up certain activities as they get older because they can no longer handle the activity effectively or safely.
Driving is one such activity that senior citizens eventually give up because it can be dangerous to drive if seniors have impaired vision or limited mobility which can result in slow reaction time.
Sometimes senior citizens understand that they need to give up driving, but there are also instances in which the family has to convince their senior relatives to give up driving.
It is important to talk to your relatives about giving up driving if they are starting to get tickets regularly, get lost when driving, run out of gas, or lose their keys.
When having this conversation with your loved one, make sure they understand that it is dangerous for them to continue driving.
