Safe Driving for a Lifetime
For older drivers, limiting driving presents practical problems and can cause strong emotions, from sadness to anger. Family members themselves may feel angry, frustrated, or guilty about depriving their loved one of the freedom of driving. Despite these concerns, family members and older drivers alike prefer to keep these conversations "in the family." The Hartford developed information to help families initiate productive and caring family conversations with older adults about driving safety, which is an available resource for you to order through the KTSRO office.
