  2. 2. The risk of being injured or killed in a motor vehicle crash increases as you age. Over the time, older drivers may experience a decline in their vision and cognitive functioning. These changes may affect some older adults' driving abilities.
  3. 3. Increased Crash Rates • Statistics from The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration 2008 show that fatal crash rates increase for people aging 75 and above, per mile travelled. • The rates notably rise after the age of 80.
  4. 4. Deaths • Over 5,500 adults ages 65 and older were killed in vehicular crashes in 2008. • More than 183,000 were injured in the same time period. • The average number of deaths among older adults per day was 15 and 500 were injured. • The majority of these vehicular deaths involved other vehicles (69%).
  5. 5. Research Findings… • Research on age-related driving concerns has shown that at around the age of 65 drivers face an increased risk of being involved in a vehicle crash. • After the age of 75, the risk of driver fatality increases sharply, because older drivers are more vulnerable to both crash-related injury and death.
  6. 6. Research Findings Three behavioral factors in particular may contribute to these statistics: • poor judgement in making left-hand turns; • drifting within the traffic lane; and • decreased ability to change behavior in response to an unexpected or rapidly changing situation.
  7. 7. Complicated Issue if • The victim is no longer working. • If someone is retired and has no lost income, an insurance company may not offer fair compensation.
