Driving Safety for Older Adults

Driving a car represents freedom and independence and helps older adults to feel more satisfied and in control of their lives. Millions of people drive after their 65th birthdays: 81% of people aged 65 and older (over 40 million people) held driver’s licenses as of 2015.

However, when people begin to experience age-related physical and mental changes, driving can become more difficult and dangerous for older adults.
