Don't take the car, you'll kill yourself...

'“I’ve sure gotten old: had two bypass surgeries, a hip replacement, I’m half blind, can’t hear so good, have trouble remembering things… but, thank God, I still have my driver’s licence.”

That joke, or something like it, has been making the rounds lately in the baby-boomer crowd, of which I am a member, as we realize that eventually we may have to give up the comfort, security and independence of having a car at our disposal.

Statistics show that although mature drivers (65 years and older) do not drive as much as they did when they were younger, they are having more accidents than any other age group, and these accidents tend to be during daylight hours with good road conditions."
