  • Safe Driving and Memory Loss

  • Memory loss can go hand in hand with safe driving, especially as individuals reach further seniority in their ages.

  • As a full-time student, my ability to recall an iota of information serves me well during exams.

  • On the opposite side of that, I get lost so easily while commuting.

  • I simply cant follow directions well.

  • As a result, my Global Positioning System, also known as a GPS, accompanies me as my typical traveling companion.

  • A family member of mine, Janis, has difficulty in remembering things in general.

  • At one time, she could recall volumes of names.

  • She still possesses a remnant of that gift, and she performs very well in her chosen profession.

  • Her capacity to find locations surpasses my own by a wide margin.

  • The primary difference between our driving styles exposes in our abilities to follow directions.

  • Instincts, Gadgets, and Safe Driving

  • Janis car displays a built-in dashboard GPS, but it has not received an update since the early 2000s.

  • It refuses to search for businesses.

  • It only accepts input for residences.

  • This has led to her reliance on instincts and a willingness to taking directions from friends.

  • With this in thought, does safe driving and memory loss directly affect each other? I personally think they exist with a link, but I believe that other accommodations can aid our strengths in arriving at appropriate destinations.

  • Unfamiliarity as It Relates to Safe Driving

  • An unfamiliarity with surroundings can cause some motorists to suffer in the zone of safe driving.

  • I need a GPS to guide me in a few particular scenarios.

  • For example, traveling for 40 minutes to a job interview can disorient me.

  • It really hurts me mentally when my GPS drops to the floor.

  • My GPS suction only lasts about that long, even when I have thoroughly cleaned my inner windshield surface.

  • To make a point, I am in my middle 30s, and I exhibit memory trouble simply because I have never been to a location before.

  • With the aid of technology, memory loss may not come across as badly.

  • News media often show the extremes when it comes to making reports.

  • With persons affected by dementia, it may seem obvious to point out memory loss as the culprit, and in turn, that leads to recognition of similar behaviors in senior citizens.

  • For the average commuter, problems with memory, or even familiarity, can perhaps reveal themselves as inconveniences.

  • Technology and a wide variety of personal giftings can aid safe driving in other areas of effort.
