New York, NY (PRWEB) December 06, 2013
Driving has become a huge concern to the increasing number of aging baby boomers. And in response to it, driving simulation company, Stisim Drive, suggested a way how seniors could make the task still safe for them to take.
A post from wtop.com, published on December 05, 2013, stated that in United States, about 10,000 people turn 65 every day. And because of the frailer body that comes with reaching that age, it said that getting behind the wheel is more difficult for the aging population.
Furthermore, the post said that makes driving riskier for them. Based on the record of the National Highway Traffic Safety Admission, it shared that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured in traffic accidents last 2012. It cited that those numbers were, respectively, 3 and 16 percent higher than the year before.
Here's an excerpt from the post.
“Every day, more than 10,000 baby boomers turn 65 and join the ever-expanding ranks of senior drivers in the United States.
By and large, older drivers have a pretty good safety record. But there comes a time when every senior citizen needs to adapt his or her driving style and start preparing to leave the driving to someone else.”
But while it's true that driving is more difficult and risky for seniors, driving simulator company Stisim Drive said that there is a way to curb those issues. That way, it cited, was practicing with a driving simulation system.
With the machine, Stisim Drive said that the elders could hone their skills behind the wheel. It stated that the use of a driving simulator could help them determine the areas where they need improvement. And by practicing with the system, it said that they could better themselves in those aspects and stay safe behind the wheel.
However, of the driving simulators, the company said that its own are the best for seniors and any other driver. And as it explained, that's because it's driving simulation software is loaded with a huge database of traffic scenes that old and young drivers could practice on.
Moreover, the company pointed out that its systems deliver cost-effective and reliable outputs. The data they provide, it added, could help seniors polish their skills behind-the-wheel even more. Additionally, it stated that researchers, rehabilitation specialists and driving instructors could greatly benefit from them as well.
