“Eight out of ten senior drivers age 65 and older take medications on a regular basis. And despite high prescription and over-the-counter medication use, almost half of senior drivers using medications have never talked with their health care providers about how the drugs might affect their safe driving abilities.”
“AAA’s Roadwise Rx is an online tool that generates personalized feedback about how these interactions between prescription and over-the-counter medicines and herbal supplements can impact safety behind the wheel,” said AAA’s Director of Traffic Safety Advocacy, Jake Nelson.
Nelson added “Drivers are encouraged to discuss the confidential results with their doctor or pharmacist to learn how to mitigate possible crash risks.”
