Talking with older drivers about driving safety

Is there an older driver in your family whose driving is beginning to worry you?

As people age, issues can arise that make driving challenging for the driver and risky for others on the road. For most of us, driving represents a certain amount of freedom, so initiating a discussion about limiting or even terminating driving altogether requires a dose of diplomacy.

If you are unsure how to broach this delicate subject with your loved one, guidance is available. Our friends at The Hartford have compiled a thoughtful guide to “crafting caring conversations.” It even includes worksheets and a list of additional resources.

Though the guide is quite comprehensive, please keep in mind that it is not exhaustive, nor is it intended as a substitute for professional or legal advice.
