North American drivers, age 70 and older, are still very active on the road, with nearly two-thirds (63%) of surveyed seniors driving three to five days a week, and more than half (56%) of surveyed seniors averaging more than 25 miles per week, according to research conducted by Home Instead, Inc., franchisor of the Home Instead Senior Care® network.
