AAA Presents Solutions to Reducing Older Driver Crashes by Focusing on Improving Driver, Vehicle and Road Safety

WHAT: AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety will release a new study
 that analyzes 25 years of police-level crash data from
 nearly 4 million injury crashes. The study answers the
 questions: Does your age really increase the likelihood
 of dying in a crash? By how much and at what ages? How
 is driver age related to fragility, illness, perceptual
 lapses and left-turn crashes?

 This study will provide new information about older
 drivers. AAA will present solutions to reduce older driver
 crashes and save lives.

WHY: People over 65 are the fastest-growing population in the
 United States. By 2020, there will be more than 40 million
 licensed drivers ages 65 and older.
