Aging in Place and Complete Streets

Just before her 99th birthday, we convinced my grandma to give up her driver’s license. While I’ve been an advocate of Complete Streets and Active Transportation for many years, I’ve been thinking more about how someone like my grandma can continue to live independently in the suburbs without a car. There are many options now that did not exist in past years, like ride share services and safer streets. AARP is a proponent of Complete Streets, and here’s a video about why it’s a good policy for older adults. Share your thoughts on this subject by emailing me.
