Love of Car: Transportation as We Age

Have you ever asked yourself how long you will be able to drive and what strategies you can use to lengthen your driving years? Are you experiencing age-related changes in your vision, reaction time or other skills leading you to wonder whether you should still be driving? Are you worried about facing that decision because of the way it may impact your participation in the community? To address those concerns, the Minnesota Gerontological Society (MGS) has co-produced a documentary with Twin Cities Public Television (tpt) and a number of other sponsoring partners. The 1-hour TV documentary has recently been released on DVD. Target audiences include mature drivers and their families, as well as professionals working with seniors and interested in educating them about safe community mobility issues.   The DVD is divided into chapters so that the documentary can be utilized as a training and teaching tool.
