Retirement from Driving

Retired PosterI got into my car the other day and got to thinking that there will be a time when I will lose my freedom and independence from driving.

How will I know when it is time to retire from driving? I don't want it to be sudden as a result of a crash that may hurt others as well as myself. What can my family do to help with the decision on my abilities? Here are some resources for support with the Retirement Discussion.. Need an update on your current ability to drive? ICBC has a  Practice and Refresher Test to try. Find out what is available as alternative transportation by Planning Ahead.

Think Ahead

I'm warm and dry enjoying the idea that being retired means I am no longer on the highway investigating collisions in this weather. Of course, Murphy was listening.

This includes maintenance workers, utility workers, police, fire, ambulance, tow trucks, Commercial Vehicle Safety Enforcement personnel, land surveyors, animal control workers, garbage collectors and other roadside workers.
