Question: My mother is 90. Is it OK for her to keep driving?
Answer :
If your mother has a valid driver's license and a clean driving record, she can legally keep driving--but should she? If your mother has poor eyesight, slowed reflexes, or other age-related ailments, she could be putting herself and others at risk every time she gets behind the wheel. As a precaution, many states now require older folks to renew their licenses in person. And some states require drivers to take eyesight and driving exams in order to renew a driver's license after reaching a certain age (e.g., 70).
