For Immediate Release: Wednesday, June 8, 2016 Montgomery County announces the launch of “Explore Older Driver Resources,” a new webpage for older residents and their families. The page includes information about driving safely as well as alternate transportation options for those who prefer to limit or cease driving. “People want to stay connected to their communities and be responsible on the roadways; this website empowers people to achieve both goals,” said County Executive Isiah Leggett. “Visitors to the site can access safe driving advice, learn about when to alter driving routines and appreciate the broad range of transportation options available to Montgomery County seniors,” added Leggett. The new webpage offers five main sections of information: 1. Interested in being a lifelong driver? Provides links to high-quality resources for safe driving advice. 2. What are some changes that might cause problems while driving? Gives basic information on age-related changes that can affect driving and resources for self-assessment. 3. How do you feel about letting someone else do the driving? Lists local resources to support those who decide to reduce time driving. 4. Interested in exploring alternatives to driving? Offers comprehensive information about transportation options for County seniors. 5. Concerned about loved ones on the road? Suggests resources to support family conversations regarding transitioning away from driving. Explore Older Driver Resources is accessible via the County senior website, which addresses a broad range of issues relevant to older County residents and their families. Residents are urged to share this webpage with friends and relatives who might benefit from this special safer-driving online resource. # # # Release ID: 16-439 Media Contact: Lorraine Driscoll 240-777-6507]]>
