Senior Drivers

We at USA Insurance Companies know that as we get older driving may become somewhat more of a challenge. As Senior Drivers, our driving abilities can change. Here are some tips we would like to share with you to stay save as you drive our roads.

  1. Avoid driving at night if you have trouble with your vision, and don’t tint your windows.
  2. Keep your windshield, headlights, and mirror clean to improve visibility.
  3. Raise your seat high enough so you have a clear view of the road.
  4. Limit distracting noise inside the vehicle. This includes the radio and conversations with passengers and use of cell phones.
  5. Stay alert and watch for flashing lights of emergency vehicles if you have difficulty hearing.
  6. Keep a safe distance between you and the car ahead so you have ample time to brake safely if necessary.
  7. Allow adequate stopping distances.
  8. Keep windshield wiper blades in proper working condition
  9. Get periodic vision and hearing tests. Get hearing aids and new glasses when needed.
  10. Take a defensive driving course offered through the AARP or the American Automobile Association.
  11. Carefully read medication labels to see if they may impair driving skills.
  12. Don’t drive if you’re feeling tired, lightheaded, or stressed
  13. Use other transportation services such as taxis and buses if you’re unsure of your ability to drive safely.
  14. Drive on familiar streets, and limit trips to those close to home.
  15. Always wear your seat belt.
  16. Please don’t TEXT when you are driving.
