Module 1: 1.6.7 Mental & Physical Conditions that Affect Driving
- 1.6.7 Age
Age is also an important physical factor that affects a person’s driving. For example, a young driver will be less aware of traffic and road hazards, whereas drivers greater than the age of 55 years may face difficulty while driving due to the changing physical capacities. For you, it is important to understand the limits of your age. Always try calibrating your driving to your changing age and physical capabilities.
