Observe What You Think Is Happening
Also, consider how confident they are behind the wheel. Sometimes, people start driving at a slower pace because they are not as confident to accelerate. This does not mean your senior who speeds down the road is okay, either. A little caution never hurt anyone, after all.
Consider their previous driving history. For example, in the last few years, have the police stopped them for a moving violation? Why did it happen? And, how many times did it occur? You may want to talk to them about the risk of their car insurance rates rising as a result of the moving violations. This may help your loved one start to process whether they should be behind the wheel.
When Danger Is Present
It is also important to consider raising the value of the driver’s liability auto insurance in this case. Having more protection may help provide some peace of mind should an accident occur. Work with your car insurance agent to learn more about these options. The key to remember here is that driving is a privilege, and one seniors must take seriously. While not driving can be challenging, causing an accident can be devastating.
