The New York state Office for the Aging is encouraging older drivers and their families to use several resources that can help avoid accidents for Older Driver Safety Awareness Week.  
While age alone is not a predictor of risk, there are several factors that can lead to unsafe driving conditions for older adults, including medical issues and impairment caused by prescription medication. 
The office also recommends having vision checked every year, driving during daylight hours only in good weather and planning routes before driving.
