Too Old for the Road  


Too Old for the Road ? follows the lives of older Irish motorists as they face new concerns head on: failing eyesight, driving licence renewal, rural isolation and facing a speeding fine at 86.

The truth is you are never too old for anything, but sometimes there are age-related complications that mean people have to give up driving. Driving a car means independence, and a connection with friends, family and the rest of society.

But what happens when your health begins to fail and you risk becoming a danger to yourself and other road users? And why do older people fear the arrival of the day when they are no longer able to drive? Too Old for the Road? explores the experiences of older drivers, and reminds us that sooner or later, the decision as to whether we will give up driving will affect us all.
