Drive On! : Preserve and Prolong Your Time on the Road (Paperback)
about this item
The post-World War II generation, the Baby Boomers, are retiring in droves at a time when U.S. life expectancy has never been higher. As a result, the population of senior drivers is exploding, a phenomenon that will create potentially massive problems for our traffic planners, highway safety engineers and healthcare providers as more and more Americans in their 70s, 80s and even 90s continue to ply the roadways. Or will it? Not necessarily, and perhaps not at all, say the six experienced and talented writers of Drive On! a new book meant to help mature drivers re-sharpen and retain their skills behind the wheel. As seniors deal with the natural changes that occur in their minds and bodies as the years go by, they can still maintain their safety on the road, even at the advanced stages of their lives. Drive On! shows them how. Written as a mix of interviews, solid information and advice, and personal experiences, Drive On! helps seniors to evaluate, strengthen and maintain their safety on the road. The book shows how to exercise sensible limitations during the aging process, and to recognize, eventually, when it might be time to give up the keys. By doing so, Drive On! provides the clearest, most comprehensive resource available for everyone who intends to stay behind the wheel and function well in today’s driving environment.
