Community Mobility for Older People
As we get older, learning how to keep using the roads safely is vital so we can keep our independence and reduce the risk of injury.
Some problems that often arise for ageing drivers are the natural deterioration of eyesight, the effects of both prescription and non-prescription medicine, reduced flexibility, slower reaction time and hearing difficulties.   The Transport Accident Commission (TAC) and La Trobe University have put together a community health program for senior road users, which provides information on road safety issues and ways to safely keep mobile around your community.   The Community Mobility for Older People program focuses on how individuals can keep mobile as they age and as their health needs change. For more details on how these sessions work, visit the TAC website.
