Many seniors choose to stop driving because of mental and physical limitations. Although the decision to stop driving may help older adults avoid accidents and other hazards that come with impaired driving, it may hinder a senior’s wellbeing. It’s common for older adults who put an end to their driving to experience physical and mental changes, less overall mobility, age-related functional declines, and increased isolation as well as other quality of life changes.
