According to the Institute of Advanced Motorists, drivers over 70 are as safe as middle aged drivers - the safest group.
Also deaths and serious injuries among older drivers are falling, although not quite as much as in other groups.
Planning a route is a good idea, especially if driving to an unfamiliar destination and you don't know the road.
When travelling greater distances to unfamiliar places, a satellite navigation system (SATNAV) can be really useful.
This inexpensive accessory can help remove much of the stress in driving.
