These sporty city girls, unlike their Gen-Z cohorts, are not counting on automated UBERs to one day chauffeur them around. Both are determined to embrace the freedom of the road and become licensed drivers.

With a husband no longer able to drive, Jean doesn't take her driving privileges lightly. Loving the freedom driving affords her, she plans to stay behind the wheel as long as she can.

"I’m hoping that my eyesight stays well so I can keep driving. I mean, at 88, I don't know how many more years you can expect. When the times come I’ll have to hang it up."
