AAA: Addressing Changes in Driving Comfort Early Can Keep Older Adults Driving Safer, Longer

November 11, 2019

AAANashville, TN – AAA says older adults with discomfort or low confidence while driving are adjusting their driving patterns to avoid driving at night, on the freeway, in afternoon rush hour traffic, or in unfamiliar areas, according to new research from the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety.

Some of the self-regulated changes older drivers make can be unnecessary and do not always improve safety. In order to extend their mobility and reduce risk on the road, AAA recommends older drivers consult a healthcare professional when feelings of driving discomfort arise.

October 21, 2019

AAAWashington, D.C. – More than 60% of teens got their driver’s license before the age of 18, according to new research from the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety. An 11% increase since 2012.

AAA says In-Vehicle Infotainment Systems Especially Distracting to Older Drivers
