Seniors on the Road – TVO

On August 15th, TVO presented a talk on Seniors on the Road.  Canada’s aging population means a greater number of senior drivers, resulting in road safety concerns. Brenda Vrkljan encounters age and the ability to drive as a lead researcher for Candrive, a hub for information on older drivers. The Agenda in the Summer welcomes Vrkljan to discuss finding the balance between public safety and keeping seniors mobile.

Anyone interested can view it here, it is about 30 min long:
