Find a Ride

America is aging and your client population is living longer with increasingly more complex medical issues.  As a physician, you are challenged to meet the needs of your patients. One of the critical public safety and health issues to address is a discussion about the transition from driving, to self-restriction, and finally to a passenger. Research has shown that men will outlive their ability to drive by 6 years and women 10 years, so it is not a matter of “if one needs to give up the keys,” but when.  Research also shows the older adults depend on their physician to alert them to changes in their abilities, including those that are critical for driving.

This website was created specifically for the North Carolina physician community to provide useful information about older drivers as well as critical links to get additional information.
