Podcast: Positives and pitfalls of being an older driver

One of the hallmarks of independence, particularly as you get older, is holding a drivers license and being able to drive your own car. Getting an older person to give up their wheels can be a lesson in futility, no matter how they need to stop driving.

Getting older doesn’t mean you automatically have to give up your independence, but it does mean you may have to take extra precautions compared with someone younger.

Joining John on the podcast today is James Williams, head of policy at the Royal Automobile Club of Victoria (RACV). Operating since 1903, RACV is a motoring club offering various services to members, including roadside assistance and car insurance.

Mr Williams is here to highlight some of the pitfalls of being an older driver, but also some of the positives you can only get with years of experience behind the wheel.
