Abstract:

Seniors represent the fastest-growing segment of drivers, wScreen shot of AAA Foundation website home pageith current projections suggesting that a quarter of all drivers will be over 65 by 2025.  Although seniors have an overall crash rate comparable to that of 20- and 30-year-old drivers, they are the most fragile drivers on the road, with a higher death rate per mile driven than any other group.

The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety uses its research and education resources to learn more about the needs and challenges of senior drivers and to identify ways to help people remain active, mobile, and safe.
