UVA Health’s Healthy Balance blog featured Dr. Thomas Hartka’s expertise on car crashes in their April article, “Car Crashes: How Safe Driving Can Save Your Life and Others.”

An excerpt:

“The more you drive, the more you become a better and safer driver. Hartka stresses that when you don’t use it, you lose it. People who aren’t driving daily anymore are losing a little of their skill set and reaction times. Be cautious if you’re back on the road again after a break from driving.”
