The title of this article, Are You Too Drugged To Drive?, grabbed my attention this morning. I don’t think so. Am I? I would know if I was, right? Not necessarily, I found out.

Every day, 10,000 Americans turn 65. 80% of drivers 65 and older regularly take medication— two-thirds take five or more daily! Yet only half have talked with a medical professional about the possible safety issues related to driving.

The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety is studying the risks of drug interaction and side effects affecting driving ability and say it’s a growing problem not only for older drivers but for anyone who takes medication and needs to drive.
