The Hartford and MIT Age Lab conducted a survey of mature drivers that included a question asking under what conditions would the driver feel like someone should talk to them about their driving. The following situations (percentage of respondents indicated) offer some suggestions for when you might want to start thinking about adjusting your driving habits.

  • If I had some incidents of forgetfulness or getting lost while driving (66%)
  • After a significant change in my health (66%)
  • I am generally concerned about my safety (59%)
  • If I was involved in a serious accident (44%)
  • If I narrowly avoided being involved in an accident (29%)
  • If I was involved in a minor accident (21%)
  • If I made a mistake while driving (15%)
