In the tender and surprising documentary short, Old People Driving, we climb into the passenger seat alongside Milton (age 96) and Herbert (age 99) as they confront a grim milestone: the end of their driving years. Through their stories, and a review of the traffic safety research, we learn whats at stake for graying drivers. And we discover the heartbreaking truth about a generation that came of age with the car: that they, too, will eventually sputter to a stop.
