A US website called Cars.Com have written an article about the best cars for Senior Drivers. Although written for the US, still relevant for the UK and some good ideas and safety tips as well. Worth a read. Click here to read the article.

Unfortunately, we see far too many incidents of pedal confusion occurring when people suddenly change to an automatic and they revert to previous manual experience in a sudden decision making event.
