Aging and driving

I have noticed changes in every one of these categories related to aging – eyesight, hearing, changes in medical condition, etc. Does this mean I’m a risk to myself and others on the road?

Not necessarily. Everyone experiences these changes to some degree, but each of us experiences them differently. There are many ways to evaluate your fitness to drive, including driver screening tools such as Drivers 65 Plus. Check your abilities frequently to recognize signs of changes and how you can regulate your driving.
