Warning Signs Indicate Senior Drivers May Need To Stop Driving

Do you have a loved one age 65 or older? If not, you will likely have a loved one who is 65 soon. Data provided by the U.S. Census Bureau indicates that all baby boomers will be 65 years of age or older by the year 2029. At that time, more than 20 percent of the United States population will be over the age of 65 years.  One concern with an aging population is an increase in the risk of motor vehicle accidents. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reports that the risk of being killed or injured in a motor vehicle accident increases with age. During 2014, over 236,000 older drivers were injured in motor vehicle accidents, and 5,700 older drivers were killed in motor vehicle accidents. Sadly, these figures may increase substantially when the number of senior drivers increases. What can you do to help prevent senior driving accidents in Fresno?
