Safer Driving at Both Ends of the Age Range Being able to drive provides an important link to dwindling independence for the elderly. And it's the first real taste of independence for teens. But statistically speaking, both groups of drivers have a higher risk of accidents. Aside from taking the keys from grandparents or making the kids wait to drive, what's being done to make it safer to be behind the wheel? Or on the road with them? Driver's ed for the young and old; join Mike McIntyre Tuesday morning at 9:00 on The Sound of Ideas.
