Road Safety Tips For Elders and teens
Our number one priority for all commuters and drivers in Reno, NV is safety. Read on for more useful information on how to avoid accidents while on the road:
The leading cause of death for people I 5 to 20 years of age is car crashes. Older drivers (ages 75 to 80) are 4 times as likely to die in a crash than middle-age drivers. Here are some ways to reverse these statistics.
As parents, we thought the scariest day of our lives was sending our children off on their first day of school. That was until we handed them the keys to a car.
About 6,000 teenagers die each year from car crashes, and it's worth stating again that it's the number one cause of death for children I 5 to 20 years old. And it's no longer just a teenage male problem. In fact, girls are more likely to have friends in their cars and are more apt to talk on the phone while driving than boys – two situations that raise the likelihood of a crash. (Having three or more passengers in a car increases the risk factor fourfold.)
Your child can be an honor roll student and editor of the yearbook, but when she gets behind the wheel of the car; she turns into a person you wouldn't recognize. She's on the phone while driving with three of her friends in the car, missing stop signs and making illegal turns without a care in the world.
She's not alone.
Here are some typical teenage driver problems.
- They overcompensate when turning the steering wheel.
- They lack experience behind the wheel, so they react poorly when the unexpected happens.
- They tend to be risk takers, especially when they first get their licenses.
- They lack the emotional and physical maturity needed to process information quickly.
- They're less likely to wear seat belts.
- They're uninformed about car maintenance.
Here are some ways to keep your child safe on the road.
Now, let's say you did massive research on finding a safe car for your child to drive, you enrolled her in multiple driving courses, and you've set rules. Hold on; you're not quite ready to hand over the keys to the car until you've taught your teenager how to maintain it. She needs to know how to check the air pressure in the tires, change a flat, check the fluids, and so on. Okay, now you can give her the keys.
- Seek a quality driving school with classrooms, professional instructors, and a serious focus. Get recommendations from other parents.
- Enroll your teenager in a defensive-driving course. Contact your local police department or Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to see if it offers one for teens. These courses may cost a couple of hundred dollars, but the learning experience is invaluable.
- Pay for private driving lessons in addition to driver's education classes, if such classes are offered at your child's school.
- Visit www.roadreadyteens.com, a Web site sponsored by the National Safety Council, the American Automobile Safety measures Association (AAA), and for a new driver Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) to help teens understand the risks involved in driving and how it takes years of experience behind the wheel to become a good driver.
- Visit www.aaapublicaffairs.com to locate a state-by-state listing of regulations governing teenage drivers, including minimum hours of supervised driving, passenger limitations, and curfews for unsupervised driving.
- While your teenager has her permit, create a chart and log every hour of driving she does. Determine a set number of hours behind the wheel that has to be reached before she can get her license.
- Don't allow your child to drive with more than one other passenger in the car. Teen crash rates rise sharply as additional passengers are added.
No matter if you're 16 or 86, driving is all about freedom – the freedom to come and go as you please so you don't have to rely on the kindness of friends and family, or a schedule for mass transit. And the older you are, the less you want to give it up. But freedom comes with a price, and unfortunately sometimes the price is someone's life.
AAA states that by the year 2020, some 50 million Americans will be 65 years of age and older, and most of them will be driving. Here are some ways to help you or your elderly parent acquire better driving skills.
You're trumping like "The Donald" at bridge. You're taking Intro to Physiology at the community college. Are you’re taking Intro to Physiology at the community college. And you’re teacher water aerobics three time a week. But you’re getting lost whole driving in once-familiar areas, you’re becoming nervous on highways, and you’re having difficulty judging distances. Cars seem to be coming out of nowhere and people seem to be honking at you more. These are typical problems for older drivers, but just because they're universal to people your age, it doesn't mean that they should be ignored. Instead, you need to address them by having your driving skills professionally evaluated and by having your health checked.
Here are some other common driving dilemmas.
- Failure in perception, causing the driver to not notice signs or signals and not yield the right of way
- Inability to properly make a left turn
- Illness that comes on quickly and unexpectedly while driving Misplacement of the right foot onto the wrong pedal
- Driving too slowly
- Difficulty in paying attention
- Too many fender benders or near crashes
- Difficulty in backing up the car
- Family and friends don't want to ride with you
You can't prevent yourself from aging, but there are ways to improve your driving skills. The following information is provided to aid you in motoring into your twilight years safely; you just have to be willing to get on board.
Driving courses offered for seniors can be found by visiting those organizations' Web sites or calling their 800 numbers (see "Finish Line: Resources," page 326). The courses are designed to help you to determine if you are a safe driver, as well as to point out problems so that you can improve your driving skills. If it's time for you to retire your license, driving courses such as these can help you decide (no one will make the decision for you).
- Take a driving course offered through the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), AAA, or the National Safety Council.
- Purchase a car that has factory-installed pedal extenders, an adjustable steering wheel, larger rearview and side-view mirrors, and a fully adjustable driver's seat.
- Have your eyes checked regularly by an ophthalmologist.
- Don't drive when you're tired or feeling ill.
- If you find yourself losing your concentration, turn off the radio and temporarily stop talking with your passenger.
- Allow extra time to arrive at your destination.
- Plan your travel schedule to avoid rush hour and other busy times.
- Adjust your travel route to avoid uncomfortable roadways and driving conditions.
If you're about to have your license renewed, contact your state's DMV to find out what will be required of you to pass the test. One of the AAA's Web sites, www.aaapublicaffairs.com, has a link to senior licensing laws. Even though the standards for passing the driver's test vary from state to state, every state will require you to take a vision test. If you don't pass the vision test, then you may be asked to have an eye examination by your physician or take additional tests.
Helping Your Parents
You can't assume that because your parents are in their 80s that they're a menace on the road. Instead, you need to see for yourself. Have them drive you around and assess their driving skills. Check their cars for excessive dents in the front or rear, which would indicate that they may be having problems pulling in and out of parking spots. Ask to speak with their doctors about any health concerns that may cause problems while driving. And talk to them about when in the future they foresee themselves voluntarily giving up their licenses, "Voluntarily" is the key word here. Your parents don't want you to take their licenses away, and you don't want to have to be put in that position. So have the discussion way before you need to, so that everyone's on the same page when the time comes.
Your parent also may wish to consider getting an evaluation by a certified driver rehabilitation specialist (see the Web site for the American Occupational Therapy Association, www.aota.org). It can run about $300, but it's as important as any other type of checkup.
On the other hand, don't be in denial when it's time for your parents to give up their licenses. It may be easier on you to have your mom drive herself to doctors' appointments, and your dad to drive himself to meet his buddies for coffee, than for you to have to take them everywhere. But they may only be driving so as not to be a burden to you. The bottom line is that their safety – and the safety of others who will be on the road with them – should be the deciding factor.
If your parents have been the cause of numerous crashes and are not physically capable of driving safely any more, but refuse to give up their licenses, here's what you can do: call the DMV or office on aging in your parents' state. Some states have provisions for people to anonymously report someone whose driving abilities have diminished to the point of causing harm.
If you live in New York City, giving up your driver's license is not an extreme sacrifice. But if you live in a rural area, not driving can alter your social life, as well as limit trips to doctors and the grocery store.
Before a driver's license is retired, voluntarily or not, there needs to be a Plan B for transportation. The best sources of information for finding alternative modes of transit in your area are the public library, the county government, or the mayor's office. Some cities even offer free or discounted bus services for senior citizens.
Honing Your Own Driving Skills
Now that you know how to help the senior and teenager in your life become better drivers, how about doing the same thing for yourself? Sign up for a defensive driving course in your area (check with the DMV or your local police station), or attend a winter driving course, such as Bridgestone Winter Driving School in Steamboat Springs, CO (www.winterdrive.com)."
