A Most Difficult Decision — Giving Up the Keys
from PIA Western Alliance
We all eventually face this question. At what point do deteriorating physical and mental abilities mean we should no longer drive a motor vehicle? For many of the Greatest Generation and the Baby Boomers that decision is at hand. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) just put out some interesting facts: In 2015 there were 40 million people driving on U.S. highways and streets who are 65 and older; That's a leap of 50% since 1999; In 2015 the number of people 70 and over was 31.7 million; and, By 2030 that figure will be something like 53.7 million. It is the goal of governments federal, state and local that we keep older adults as independent and self-sufficient as possible.
