Being a safe driver means more than avoiding accidents. It also means properly preparing for each trip, paying attention to road conditions, being aware of your own changing abilities, and knowing what to do in case of an emergency.
With the aging of the baby boomer generation, people over 65 are the fastest-growing population in the U.S. Seniors are among the safest of drivers, being the demographic group most likely to wear their safety belts and obey traffic laws. However, seniors are also more likely to be killed in a car crash due to age-related fragility and health issues.
For this reason, AAA and our Traffic Safety Foundation are dedicated to helping experienced drivers improve their performance behind the wheel.
