There is never a good time to have the difficult discussion with older loved ones about cutting back on their driving or taking away the keys altogether. But the holidays offer an opportunity to sit down and do this. We Need to Talk, AARP’s Driver Safety program, helps families begin the conversation.

To an older adult, giving up driving often represents relinquishing independence. Knowing how to approach this sensitive topic can avoid hurt feelings and ease what is often a challenging life transition.
