Promoting older driver safety: A guide and resources for states

Traffic Safety Pulse News

By 2060, the number of people age 65 and older in the U.S. is projected to more than double, which will represent nearly one in four people. While older adults tend to practice safe driving behaviors, the effects of aging may impact their driving ability. Join us for a briefing on the latest publication released by the Behavioral Traffic Safety Cooperative Research Program (BTSCRP), Promoting Older Driver Safety: Guide for State Practices. After a researcher from Cambridge Systematics provides an overview of the report with practical information for State Highway Safety Offices, a representative from the Florida Department of Transportation will share how they are addressing the unique needs of this population.
