ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A new resource is available for the elderly to be safe while driving.
The CDC's National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health released a new web resource to help employers and workers adopt practices that keep workers ages 55 or older safe on the road.
The release coincides with Older Americans Month and aligns with the institute's Center for Motor Vehicle Safety's goal to prevent work-related motor vehicle crashes and resulting injuries.
Officials say a lot of it you know, but it's nice to be reminded. It is also advised to be on very alert, and to not do other things such as texting.
Practices that may particularly benefit older drivers include planning routes in advance.
