The reality of driving is that at a certain age you will need to hang up the keys. However, a new study out by Daniel Munro of the Conference Board of Canada shows that most Canadians have a tough time doing this and are still driving when they shouldn’t be. 68% of Canadians aged 65-74 report driving as primary form of transportation. 31% of those 85 and over still drive. What do we do about this? How do we give them alternative options?
Daniel Munro, Associate Director of Public Policy at The Conference Board of Canada joined the show to discuss.
What is your experience with this issue? Do you have a family member who had to stop driving and did you find a way to convince them? Was it difficult? How do we get the senior moving without them needing to drive?
