Driving Technology and the Older Driver

While concerns are raised about an increase in the number of older drivers on the road , technology should eventually ameliorate the effects of aging on certain diminishing cognative abilities, such as reaction time and certain navigation skills.  Several US States are in the process of drafting legislation that will permit so-called “driverless” vehicles to use public roads.  In the UK, research is underway into technology designed to make driving easier for seniors.  A car means mobility and lessens the isolation and dependence that many experience in senior years.  A few more years on the road can make all the difference.
