  • Is Your Driving Changing (RoSPA)?

    Mobility is vital to maintaining a full and independent life, but as we grow older, our general health and fitness begins to decline. This often causes concern that older drivers may be at a higher risk of being involved in road crashes. Therefore, we need to help people to maintain safe mobility as they get older, says the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) .
    If someone is becoming unsafe to drive, it is important that they change the way they drive, or stop driving altogether if necessary.
    RoSPA’s website has information on the law about driving licences, driving assessments and advice for drivers and family members.
