Help from the NYS Office for the Aging

It is difficult for both the older drivers and the family when the older driver has become a risk on the highways. The circumstances can result in strong emotions, conflicts and confusion.

To help, the New York State Office for the Aging has the Older Driver and Pedestrian Safety Project. The Program offers a handbook for families titled "When You Are Concerned." The 56-page book has won awards and is for families who need to deal with the issue of an older driver at risk.

The handbook is available at the website of the NYS Office for the Aging. You can also request a copy of the handbook by phone at 1-800-342-9871, or a request mailed to:
