Senior Driving.

Today’s seniors are living longer and healthier lives. They’re active and mobile. While age is not an indicator of driving skill, it can be a challenge.

CAA believes that rather than limiting the mobility of ageing drivers, solutions must be found that meet the needs of all drivers.

We support strategies that include developing an ability-based licensing program, road improvements and education for ageing drivers to help recognize changing abilities.
