Improving Senior Driving Safety
GPS Tracking: How Satellite Technology Is Keeping Roads Safer
The two categories of drivers that are most often times viewed as "high-risk" are teen drivers due to their inexperience, and senior drivers due to their potentially diminished physical abilities. Although both forms of driver can pose a serious concern to other motorists sharing the roadways, seniors present some of the more unique and challenging problems because they will often time continue driving well beyond the time they should hang up the keys permanently. This results in potentially dangerous situations for both other motorists and the senior driver themselves. Determining whether a senior driver needs to hang up the keys for good used to require in-depth personal investigation into driving and personal habits that could take months to assess and analyze, but senior tracking systems such as the SilverCloud GPS are making it easier for concerned family members and friends to figure out if an elderly driver needs to retire from driving.
Before a person makes the decision to use fleet tracking technology to observe whether or not a senior driver could be a liability on the road they should first observe for both warning signs of Alzheimer's Disease and warning signs of diminished driving capabilities. People interested in investigating the warning signs of Alzheimer's Disease should contact informative agencies such as the Alzheimer's Association to access educational and awareness material, but for those people who are trying to determine whether a senior driver is showing signs of diminished driving capabilities, Tracking System Direct has posted a few common warning signs associated with poor senior driving.
