Traffic Safety for Older People 5-Year Plan

At this day-long meeting, NHTSA seeks input on planned interventions for older drivers over the next 5-10 years. To address the rapidly increasing number of older drivers on our Nation's roads, NHTSA aims to determine how to best identify and serve at-risk drivers, support older drivers through programs and technology, and create safe and realistic transportation alternatives for those who can no longer drive. NHTSA researchers will be joined by experts in the fields of law enforcement, older-driver licensing, occupational therapy, aging services, and mobility counseling. NHTSA will use information gathered at the meeting to update the agency's Traffic Safety for Older People – 5-Year Plan
