Winter Driving for Seniors 2021

Winter weather is coming to Michigan according to the local weatherpersons. With COVID-19 necessitating social distancing practices, I can only assume many Senior persons are having to drive themselves to appointments this time of year rather than relying on neighbors & public transportation.

We found this article from McCann & Wall with tips on how to drive safely this winter if you are or know a senior:

Health Concerns – getting older means many functions of your body are slowing down or beginning to develop issues. If you are over the age of 65, you should get an eye test each year to make sure that you are able to see your surroundings clearly.

Vehicle Maintenance – Make sure your vehicle is in good running condition for the weather. Check your battery, brakes, tires, & other important systems to be sure they are safe for driving.

Preparing Your Vehicle – Start your vehicle and let it warm up a little and allow the front/rear defrosters do most of the work. Use long-handled scrapers & shovels to cut down on injuries.

Driving in the Snow – Check the weather report before you head out, if the conditions don’t feel right to you then don’t go out. Add additional stopping time because of slippery roads & intersections.
