On Thursday afternoon on The Niall Boylan Show, Tara Duggan asked: Should there be a cut off age for driving?
A new study on ageing from Trinity College revealed that elderly people are happiest when they are literally in the driver's seat. According to the latest research, older adults prefer to drive themselves or be driven by a partner or spouse rather than being chauffeured around by other family, friends or taxis.
The study revealed older people who still drive have better mental health, have higher levels of social participation and social networks than those who have others do the driving for them. However, other surveys have revealed that many people believe a licence should be revoked once a person reaches the age of 70 - How do you feel about this?
