Traffic Maneuvers of Elderly: Their Viewpoint and Perspective 2002-01-2081

Population trends indicate that older drivers account for a larger and more significant portion of the driving population than in the past and this number is expected to increase in the future. The objective of this study is to identify the specific driving maneuvers whose unsuccessful undertaking results in specific types of crashes involving these drivers. Four types of crashes were identified as the most prominent areas and a survey was conducted that examined their perspective. The findings of this study will be used to improve our understanding of the needs of elderly drivers to create a safer environment for all.
