Are you an older driver who may have fallen in the past year or so? Do you find yourself losing your balance more than you have in the past? (unrelated to any ongoing medical issue)

For adult children, have you noticed more trips or falls in your aging parent? Has your loved one recently stumbled or tripped in their home? Are they still driving? If so, this post is for you!

Recent research in the United States has established a definite correlation between falls and older driver crash involvement. According to an article published by the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society, older adults that have fallen two or more times in the previous year may be at a higher risk of being involved in an at-fault car crash.

These are scary findings - But important facts to consider!
