Detroit, MI (PRWEB) January 22, 2014
An elderly woman's recent fatal accident has raised elderly driving concerns. In response to it, driving simulator company, Stisim Drive reached out to help elders and introduced a new method how to become safer while behind the wheel.
In a post from usatoday.com dated January 20, 2014, the woman was identified to be the 88-year-old Lorraine McKaig of Livonia, Michigan. It detailed that she crashed into a fence in the east side of Detroit on January 16 and was found eight hours after outside of her car, though it was said she died officially due to a heart disease.
As the post stated, McKaig's death particularly raised the debate whether family members should allow elders to keep on driving. And based on the statement of one interviewee in the report, it also displayed the difficulties of trying to a stop a senior from driving.
Below is a part of the said post.
“The debate over elderly drivers reached a fever pitch last week as details emerged involving the death of 88-year-old Lorraine McKaig. The Livonia, Mich., woman was detoured after being ticketed by Livonia police because she tried to drive through a barricaded stretch of Merriman Road on Wednesday. McKaig, whose official cause of death was heart disease, never made it to the restaurant and instead was found more than eight hours later on the ground outside her car on Detroit's east side after a crash into a fence.”
According to Stisim Drive, road accidents could happen to any driver. Nonetheless, it said that old age could definitely diminish a person's driving abilities.
However, it stated that there is a way for elder drivers to stay safer while behind the wheels and drive longer. And that way, it said, is continued practice with a driving simulation system.
The machine, Stisim Drive explained, offers a safe practice environment that is truly appropriate for senior drivers. That, it said, further helps them to stay alert and maintain their good driving skill. Moreover, it cited that with its output data, it keeps them informed whether they are still apt to drive or not, hence, avoiding any untoward driving incidents.
When it comes to one driving simulator system to get though, the company believes that its own is the right pick. It said that its machines are cost-effective and could even be used in research and rehabilitation besides in training and instruction. Moreover, it pointed out that its Stisim Drive software is fully loaded of scenarios that one could encounter while on the road.
