Preventing Elderly Driving Accidents Pamphlet

Serving Bridgeport, Norwalk, Danbury, Ridgefield, Stamford & all of Connecticut

10,000 people in America are turning 65 every day for the next 18 years, and concerns are being brought up over the ability of this aging demographic to drive safely. Various studies have shown that elderly drivers around the age of 65, face an increased risk of being involved in a motor vehicle accident. After the age of 75, this risk increases dramatically, for an elderly driving accident to occur. A 1997 National Highway Traffic Safety Administration study, indicated that elderly driving individuals comprise 9% of the U.S. population but account for 14% of all traffic fatalities and 17% of all pedestrian fatalities.

Because elderly drivers generally have diminished health and fitness, compared to their younger counterparts, they run an increased risk of being involved in an elderly driving accident and could suffer more serious injuries and be at a greater risk of dying. It is vitally important that family members, friends and caregivers closely monitor the driving habits and abilities of the elderly to operate a motor vehicle on a regular basis.

These materials have been prepared to provide family, friends, caregivers, and those close to the elderly driver with an ability to better recognize problems and concerns and to develop a better understanding and recognize what steps should be taken to modify, restrict and/or terminate the elderly driver’s ability to operate a motor vehicle.
