I help a lot of seniors at my job. It's all about empowerment, giving seniors the ability to drive is great because, A) They're going out more, which is better for their health than staying home all day. B) They don't have to feel dependent on others for rides, and like they are a burden on their friends, neighbors, or family. C) They are better able to make it to medical appointments. Of course, seniors should recognize when they can no longer drive. That's a hard one, and it can be very depressing for some seniors. Luckily there are services that provide transportation for seniors, many of which are also empowering. :)

My favorite program is that where seniors volunteer drive other seniors, and then when the volunteer is not able to drive any longer, they can be part of the program where other seniors can drive them. It's a beautiful system where they can be taken care of the system they invested so much of their own time to. :)

Cars for the Consumer The all-new +Ford Motor Company Ranger. Thoughts? 
The Ranger gets a rugged new look that borrows styling cues from the Everest SUV.

Ford shouldn't have to worry about competition between the ranger and the F 150 , 250 , 350 and up because some people will always need a full size pick up truck for hauling bigger and heavier loads like ranchers , big boats , car haulers , big campers and construction/industrial equipment .
A ranger will handle light and intermediate payloads and has better fuel economy.

Indeed I am—it’s part of the reason I'm waiting for the 2016 VWs to appear before really going into New Car Search Mode this fall, because they will support Car Play (as well as Android Auto and Mirror Link) in their new head units.

How about not driving with your pet in your lap!
