Responsible driving

When driving it is always imperative to plan ahead, we need to know where we are going and ideally have some alternative ways of getting there.

We take it for granted that  driving our own car will help us to maintain our independance, unfortunately with each passing year it is important to be aware that at some point driving might no longer be possible.

Visual problems, mobility issues and cognition changes all mean that  as we age using public transport will become more difficult , but they also mean that our ability to drive safely becomes increasingly compromised. At some point we have to do the sums and work out whether it might actually be cheaper and less worrying to sell the car and pay for taxi services.
