About Me and Elderly Driver

 

A Personal Note from an Elderly Driver

Hi, my name is Dan Moreno. I am a relatively new (only 63 years old) elderly driver. Only a few years ago, I still thought of myself as a middle-aged man and, decidedly, not an elderly driver.  But, with eight grandchildren, increasingly graying temples and the arrival of my sixty-third birthday, I have decided to embrace the irreversible march of time, and all that goes with it – I am and henceforth, will ever be an elderly driver.  Now, when I say embrace, I don’t mean “accept without challenge.”  Like, many of my fellow senior drivers, I want to keep driving for as long as it safe for me to drive.  I have a vested interest in this site because I am, along with all other elderly drivers, the subject.

Here’s just a little bit about myself. I was born and raised in New York, but have made my home in southern Ontario, where I live with my wife (of 39 years) and my youngest daughter (in her late twenties).  I have two other daughters and a son, all married with eight children, all of whom I adore.

I was in sales and in credit management for some years and then a technical writer for about twenty years, in quality assurance for half that time, a trainer, seminar leader, public speaker and a blogger for a couple of years.  Yep, it has been a checkered career, but as I look back, I realize it has been a time full of learning and rich life experiences.  Today, I am retired (kind of) and serve in my church and devote many hours to this site and the first one I started two years ago.

About this site

Realizing that I am an elderly driver means, among other things, that I need to be really honest about my capability as a driver. That’s kind of scary!  I’ve been driving for over 40 years.  I depend on it. Driving an automobile is part of me. It gives me independence. It gives me control. And while, intellectually, I could understand why I might not be driving at 95 or, even 85, it gets much harder to grasp the notion that I might be asked to stop operating a car in my 70’s. (Afterall, that is less than a decade away.) So, I decided the best way to prepare for this challenge is not to sit idly by and let the years roll by, catching me unprepared.

I want to understand what to expect about my driving performance in the coming years. I want to assess my driving performance against what I learn and devise strategies to improve my performance.  I want, at the very least, to slow down the inevitable deterioration of my driving performance as an elderly driver and to be drive, as many years as I am able,  with confidence! That’s what this website is all about. It will serve as a repository of what I learn and a means to share with you, my fellow elderly driver.

If you wish to be kept informed about future projects or would like to be kept updated when new posts appear on this blog, please take a moment to subscribe below to this site.

My sincere hope is that you,  as a fellow elderly driver, gain as much from reading the articles in this site, as I do writing  them.
