5 Signs That a Senior Should Stop Driving on Lagos Roads

Driving is an uphill task in Lagos. There is a quantum of things that can frustrate your driving. The most obvious one is the notorious traffic while others are the reckless danfos who act as if they own the road and the shenanigans of the traffic wardens. This said, there are some seniors and elderly ones who still drive in Lagos. There is nothing wrong with this. But you have to look out for some signs to decide if it is time for the senior to stop driving. Here are some of the signs to you should look out for.
  1. They always dent their car — If you receive reports almost weekly that your aged dad is always denting his car, you should take action before you get news of their involvement in a fatal accident. Perhaps, it is time to get them a driver.

  2. They get lost in familiar locations — A senior has been driving this particular location for several years. But suddenly you receive a call that they do not yet return. Meanwhile, he has been driving around this familiar location for hours. If this is the case, you should just stop them from driving.

  3. They don’t want to drive at night — For a fairly young driver, it is difficult to concentrate while driving at night let alone a senior. So, if they are reluctant to drive especially at night, it may be a signal that it is time to quit the wheels.

  4. Their vision declines — Anyone with poor vision should not drive. Hence, the more you get older, the more your vision deteriorate. According to research, your vision declines significantly especially when you are 75 and above. So, don’t ignore vision complaints from a senior who drives.

  5. They get confused by traffic lights — If a senior cannot recognize simple traffic lights, it is time them to stop driving. For example, if a traffic light says stop and they move; you should be very concerned.

It is always a challenge to get the elusive fish to bite the bait, and sitting still for hours on the end just to be able to catch fish can be very relaxing.

Barring bad luck and circumstances that are really unfavorable for fishing, a good fishing rod is necessary for a good catch.

If you are a beginner at fishing, it is perfectly all right to use a simple fishing rod and reel – nothing spiffy and nothing fancy. When you are jus…
