A 45 minute session explaining the growing problem of taking medications while driving by seniors.We will encourage seniors to use the “Roadwise Rx” program through AAA, which helps them determine if their medications cause impairment behind the wheel. In this presentation we will express the importance of having a driver if your medication impairs you and the consequences of (DUI-D) Driving Under the Influence of Drugs.

Eight out of ten senior drivers age 65 and older take medications on a regular basis. And despite high prescription and over-the-counter medication use, almost half of senior drivers using medications have never talked with their health care providers about how the drugs might affect their safe driving abilities.

Roadwise Rx is a free, confidential tool developed by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety that adults can use to explore how medications may affect safe driving.

How it works

Roadwise Rx offers a way for you to record all of your medications in one central location. It also provides customized feedback on how your prescription and over-the-counter drugs, herbal supplements and foods, as well as their interactions with each other, can affect safe driving.
