Senior Traffic and Driving Issues

Helping Seniors With Illinois Driving and Traffic Matters

Driving can become more challenging as people age, especially when it comes to obeying traffic laws. Older drivers may be at a disadvantage in keeping themselves and others safe on the road due to factors such as failing eyesight and hearing.

For many older adults, driving is a form of independence, so the decision of whether or not to stop driving can be a difficult one for the driver, their family, and the community.

At Wilson & Wilson Estate Planning and Elder Law, LLC, our La Grange and Northbrook senior law attorneys understand the unique challenges faced by older driver. We’re committed to helping older adults keep their independence and continue driving safely. If your loved one receives a traffic ticket, we’ll vigorously defend them to ensure they can keep their license.

We also strongly advocate for older adults in Illinois driver’s license hearings. If the Illinois Secretary of State determines that a hearing is necessary, we’ll represent your loved one and fight to let them keep their license.

However, if it becomes clear that an older adult should no longer be driving, we can facilitate a conversation with the family about giving up the keys. We’ll also suggest alternative transportation options to help your loved one maintain their independence.

If your loved one is facing traffic or driver’s license issues in Cook, DuPage, or Lake County, we’re here to help.
