MEDFORD, Ore. -- New research from AAA says that exercise can help senior citizens drive longer.
The AAA study finds that increased fatigue and poor physical functioning are leading factors that can result in older adults limiting their driving.
This is becoming more important as time goes on. By 2030, one in five adults will be 65 or older.
Exercise and stretching can help improve flexibility. This can help with checking blind spots, parking, and adjusting seat-belts.
The research says that 2.5 to 5 hours of moderate-intensity exercise each week is good. The other option is between 75 minutes and 2.5 hours of high-intensity training.
