SAN ANGELO, TX - Nearly 90% of older drivers do not make inexpensive vehicle adjustments to help stay safe on the roads.
Some simple improvements you can make are adding seat cushions to improve your line of sight.
Using multi-faceted mirrors to help see other drivers on the road, and steering wheel covers to improve the grip for drivers with arthritis can all help save lives when behind the wheel.
A spokesperson for AAA in Texas says older people also make their drive more comfortable when they make these adjustments.
When you start driving less that can impact mental health as well and so promoting seniors driving for as long as safely possible is a good thing for them and for their longevity.
Armbruster also adds never use cruise control when you're driving in hazardous conditions. Keep that in mind as we see possible snow and icy roads these coming days.
