Driving Decisions Workbook
The goal of this self assessment workbook is to help elder drivers increase their self-awareness and knowledge about age-related changes that affect safe driving. The aim is extending safe driving.
The workbook contains five sections that have been identified as areas impacting safe driving:
- On The Road
- Getting Around
Each section will take 5-10 minutes to complete. Within each section, there are questions on different topics. Once the participant has circled his/her answer there are arrows that connect from certain answers to feedback. The feedback provides information about certain problems and suggestions on how to deal with those problems.13
