Are you concerned your driving skills are declining, but can’t pinpoint specific issues? Are you worried about a family member’s driving ability? Is there an increase in driver accidents or a family member getting lost while driving?
Concerns like these may signal the need for a driver evaluation.
Need for Driver Evaluation
Driver safety issues come in many forms. Feeling overwhelmed at an intersection, exhausted after driving in town, hitting the wrong pedal, or feeling like others on the road are driving too fast, are just some of the signs that may signal the need for a professional driver evaluation.
Professional driver evaluation identifies impairment issues that may unnecessarily increase the risk to a driver and others. Changes in driving ability can result from many problems and conditions:
- Slower reaction time
- Shorter attention span
- Lagging reflexes
- Stiff joints or weak muscles
- Poor eyesight
- Diminished night vision
- Hearing problems
- Reduced memory
- Poor decision-making skills
- Drowsiness or medication effects
- Increase in accidents or near misses
- Physical impairments
- Recent major medical illnesses or events
- Increased anxiety and agitation
- Recent falls
