For many people in the Central Valley, East Bay, North Bay, and surrounding regions in California, driving is an essential part of their daily lives. It allows them to stay connected with the outside world and maintain a sense of independence. However, there are many physical or cognitive challenges that can make driving difficult and even dangerous.
For example, seniors may encounter physical changes such as vision problems, slower reaction times, and weakened muscles, or cognitive changes like memory loss or confusion, that can all affect their ability to drive safely. New mothers can also have difficulty driving due to physical and cognitive changes, such as fatigue, nausea and dizziness, which can make it hard to concentrate on the road. It can also be difficult or impossible to drive yourself if you’re living with a disability or you’re recovering from an injury or surgical procedure due to physical limitations.
For those who are no longer able to drive, it can be a difficult transition. They may feel isolated or dependent on others for transportation. If you’ve been providing transportation for a loved one, you may not always be available for them, especially if you have to focus on your job or you have your own family to consider.
