      A team at Newcastle University is developing new technology aimed at helping older drivers stay on the road.
      Many give up because their reaction times have slowed down - but this means they become more isolated and inactive.
      One of the Intelligent Transport team's developments is a "Granny-Nav" which identifies the safest route, such as avoiding right turns.:bounce:

      So how old do they need to be to have this? My 80 year old grandparents drive just fine on right turns.
