More and more people age 50+ are moving to Delaware. And most of them are hitting the road and doing it safely. In fact, we know that older drivers are safe drivers. The incidence of older driver crashes and fatalities has declined steadily. These older drivers are keeping their licenses longer and driving more often. We also know they are less likely to talk on a cellphone while driving or drive under the influence of alcohol.
Join us on Thursday, September 15 for We Need to Talk, a program developed to offer tips, guidance, and resources to family members who are planning sensitive conversations with their loved ones regarding safe driving.

The holiday season provides a time for many family members who live apart to become reacquainted with each other, enjoying cherished meals, participating in long-held traditions, shopping at post-Christmas sales and doing a good deal of driving from one place to another. Over the course of a week of expeditions, children and grandchildren of older drivers may become concerned with impairments faced by many of us as we age, whether visual, cognitive or mobility-related. Families are faced with a complex and emotionally charged question: “At what point does a person become unfit to drive?”
You may be seeing signs that their driving skills are not quite what they used to be. Maybe their reflexes have slowed or their vision is not as strong. You are increasingly concerned not just about their personal safety, but also the safety of passengers and other drivers.
