This website provides a guide to resources related to mature driver safe driving, having a conversation when an older driver seeks to limit or stop driving, and mobility options after the individual has stopped driving.
Older drivers are often safer drivers. However, everyone reaches a point when their physical limitations contribute to unsafe driving. And, when they are involved in a crash, older drivers are more likely to be severely injured or killed in a traffic crash.
“Driving is a complex activity that requires a variety of high-level cognitive skills that can diminish through changes that occur with normal aging and/or as a result of other age-related factors.” (NJ DHTS Highway Safety Plan 2021)
