CHICAGO (CBS) — Nearly 90 percent of senior citizens are driving a car that doesn’t fit their aging needs.

An AAA Motor Club survey finds only about 1 in 10 drivers 65 and older with aging health issues are driving a vehicle that features things like key-less entry and larger dashboard controls.

Nearly 90 percent of seniors have health issues that affect driving safety, such as flexibility, vision and strength.

Triple A recommends older drivers look for vehicles with such features as six way adjustable seats, four door models, thick steering wheels, power mirrors and auto dimming mirrors.
