As our population ages, studies show that seniors who stay active live longer, healthier and happier lives. Maintaining

that sense of independence, even after retiring from driving, is critical. The Alberta Motor Association is a strong

advocate for improving seniors transportation and ensuring that seniors have choices for their mobility needs. The

AMA is working to raise awareness and to educate seniors and their families on the importance of planning ahead to

the day they decide to retire from driving. Working with committed partners, AMA organizes community roundtables

and transportation forums across the province. From our mature driver education courses to encouraging volunteer

driving, we are focused on solutions that promote independence.

Introduction

Mobility is an important element of everyone’s health and quality of life. Getting older does not necessarily

mean giving up mobility and independence but the physical and mental changes that sometimes come with

aging may affect our driving abilities. Awareness of the changes that some seniors go through as they age is

the first step to a long and safe driving career and allows us to plan ahead to a day when we may no longer

have the ability to drive safely.

Changes in health may require us to adopt new driving behaviours or consider alternative transportation

options. Be aware of possible changes in vision, hearing, flexibility, and concentration and talk to your doctor

about any health concerns that may affect driving. Also be aware of the possible side effects and interactions

of any prescription medications and non-prescription drugs such as alcohol.

Since the ability to drive safely is not determined by age but by physical and mental health, there are many

things that drivers of all ages can do to prolong their safe driving careers. Below are a few recommendations

and adjustments that you can follow to maintain safe driving. Remember to also pay attention to your personal

driving anxieties and take necessary steps to address them.

• Have regular medical, vision, and hearing check-ups

• Always wear your latest prescription glasses and/or hearing aids

• Stay physically and mentally fit

• Be aware of the side effects of all medications and non-prescription drugs that you are taking

• Avoid rush hour traffic – try to run your errands during the mid-morning when traffic is lighter

• Avoid driving at night if possible – if night driving is unavoidable, make sure that headlights, mirrors, and

windshields are clean and tilt your rearview mirror to diminish glare

• Avoid winter driving or driving during poor weather/visibility conditions

• Avoid freeways or busy streets – take side roads instead

• Avoid left-hand turns at intersections – take three right-hand turns at the following intersection instead

• Leave more distance between you and the car ahead – at least three travelling seconds

• Plan routes ahead for trips into unfamiliar territory

• Plan for extra time and more breaks on longer trips

• Park so that you do not have to reverse exit

• Install larger rearview and side mirrors

• Take a brush-up or refresher driving course

Some driving behaviours can cause serious safety problems for both yourself and other motorists. These may

not always be corrected through increased awareness or physical fitness so it is important to be aware of

warning signs.

Planning Ahead

Today we are outliving our ability to drive safely. This means that before we limit or stop driving we should give

thought to other ways to remain mobile. Thinking about limiting or stopping driving may make us feel angry,

depressed, or frustrated. Although these feelings are normal, there are some strategies that can make the

transition from driver to permanent passenger easier:

• Develop a transportation plan. Think of ways you can stay mobile without driving: walking, public transit,

taxi, volunteer drivers, family, and friends. Involve family and friends in this discussion – remember that more

minds are better than one!

• Develop your schedule around your transportation plan. Alternative volunteer transportation can often be

difficult to find during the peak business hours of weekdays. Try to schedule appointments and errands for

the evenings and weekends when family, friends, and neighbours are more likely to be able to offer a ride.

Ask your doctor’s office and bank if they have extended hours during any weeknights or if they would be

willing to schedule a Saturday appointment – businesses will be more likely to adopt flexible scheduling if

they know that it is in demand.

• Brainstorm creative ways you can reimburse and/or recognize the contributions of family and friend volunteer

drivers: bake them cookies, offer to babysit their young children, or give them a complimentary lesson in

something that you are good at. Instead of hesitating to ask a family member or friend for a ride, ask yourself

what you can offer them in exchange.

• Develop a transportation budget. Most of the time we do not even realize how much it costs to own and

operate a car. Those funds could be reallocated to alternative transportation.

• Talk to others who have made the transition from driver to permanent passenger. Speaking to someone who

can relate to your experience can help to make the transition less stressful and might also provide you with

some ideas for remaining independent.

Warning Signs of Diminished Driving Ability

• Decrease in confidence while driving

• Forcing other motorists to drive defensively, for example, by excessive horn honking

• Incorrect signaling

• Difficulty maintaining lane position

• Driving too quickly or too slowly

• Failure to notice traffic signs

• Failure to stop at a stop sign or red light

• Needing help or instruction from passenger(s)

• Slow or poor decision making, for example, trouble making turns, poor estimates of distances,

driving too close to other vehicles

• Frequently getting lost or becoming disorientated

• Increased car crashes, fender-benders, near-misses, and/or traffic citations

Pedestrian Safety

Relying on a personal vehicle for mobility typically means that people are less active. As you begin trying out

different transportation options in your community, you may find that you are walking more frequently than

before. Whether you are walking to a transit stop, to your neighbour’s or to the corner store, this increased

activity can become a healthy part of your daily routine.

Before you head out the door, consider the following pedestrian safety tips to ensure that you arrive at your

destination – and back home – safely.

1. Be visible to others: wear bright or light-coloured clothing or reflective strips when walking in dark or lowlight

conditions.

2. Cross streets safely: obey all traffic signs and signals; only cross streets at corners and crosswalks,

preferably at intersections with traffic lights. If the light changes to “Don’t Walk” while you are in the

crosswalk, continue to cross the street.

3. Stop and look: remember to look left, right, and left again before proceeding to cross the road; make eye

contact with drivers in each lane you cross to ensure you are seen.

4. Choose a safe path: walk on sidewalks whenever possible; if there are no sidewalks, walk on the side of

the road facing traffic.

5. Walk with a friend: this will help to ensure everyone arrives at their destinations safely.

6. Choose proper footwear: ensure that you have adequate footwear for all weather conditions. Boots should

have non-slip soles, and additional safety devices, such as ice-gripping enhancements, may be needed for

extra traction in the winter months.

Staying mobile is important to the lifestyle of

today’s aging population. Awareness of the

changes we go through as we age is key to

a long and safe driving career. Here are some

tips to help keep you safe:

• Know the facts:

Learn about the physical and mental

changes that occur when we age and how

these changes may affect our driving.

• Brush up on your driving knowledge

and skills:

Pick up a Basic License Driver’s Handbook to

review to rules of the road. Take a refresher

class or brush up lessons to renew your

awareness and sharpen your skills.

• Make a plan of action:

Check out the alternative forms of

transportation in your community. Ideally,

the transition from driver to passenger will

occur gradually, allowing time to practise

and adjust to new mobility options.

medically at-risk drivers and to reduce the

social and economic health impacts of
