With retirement ages rising, and many people choosing to take part time roles after retirement that involve driving, especially in the gig economy, we’re looking at the challenges faced by older drivers in general, as well as companies that employ them. The live panel discussion at 2:00pm is hosted by legendary TV and radio presenter Valerie Singleton with the opportunity for listeners to ask questions of the panellists.
As the UK population ages, more drivers are now aged over 75 than ever before. And the number of pensioners behind the wheel is predicted to continue to grow significantly. But, despite some of the headlines, older drivers are statistically one of the safest groups behind the wheel, and access to a car is critical for many of them for their independence, health and emotional wellbeing.
