Safe Driving Tips For Older Drivers

The older we get, the more difficult it becomes to remember all of the rules of the road. But just because we start to age, doesn’t mean we have to give up driving. There are many things that you can do to remain a safe driver even in your old age. Here are a few helpful tips:

Find The Right Car For You

All the bells and whistles on fancy new cars can be overwhelming for anyone, not just older drivers. Don’t let the dozens of high-tech features distract you from the road – find a vehicle that’s right for you and makes driving comfortable. Choosing a car with automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes will make driving easy. It is also important to keep your car is proper working condition by getting it maintenanced regularly. This way, you won’t have to worry about anything but the rules of the road.

Stay On Top Of Your Health

As you get older, its imperative that you stay healthy so you will always be in the best possible driving shape. Make sure that you get plenty of sleep at night, get your eyes checked annually, wear glasses if it will improve your visibility while driving, and talk with your doctor so you are aware of how any of your ailments or medications may impact your ability to drive.

Drive Defensively

Being aware of your surroundings is essential when it comes to safe driving. Don’t let smartphones, GPS devices, loud music, or anything similar distract you from driving. In addition, we suggest older drivers pay close attention at intersections, drive with the flow of traffic, don’t drive too close to the car in front of you, and allow yourself sufficient braking distance.

Don’t let old age limit your independence! If you follow these helpful driving tips, you will keep yourself and others safe on the road.

Couldn't ask for a better establishment! I been driving around with a cracked windshield for longer than I should have. Finally had am off day and dropped them off my car. I was running late to pick up the car and they were very accommodating. Some places would make you wait until next day. Reasonable straightforward prices. They have gained a customer for life.

Frank’s was great. They didn’t have my windshield in stock and had to order one, but they were ready for me the next day. The work was completed very quickly, and the staff were all friendly. The price was fair. Would go back again if necessary!

I am extremely happy with the service I received from Frank's Auto Glass Repair. The replacement took a few hours because of the business' excellent service that it is first come first served. I have nothing but good things to say about this business. I pray I do not need another one anytime soon but I will definitely refer family and friends for premier services!
