An overwhelming majority of senior drivers support tougher driving laws for older drivers, according to a AAA Foundation study on aging Americans. From bans on wireless devices to ignition interlocks for first-time DUI offenders, more than seven out of 10 drivers age 65 and older support greater scrutiny of the license-renewal process for themselves and their peers, according to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety\u2019s latest report on aging Americans. The report, Older American Drivers and Traffic Safety Culture, is being released during National Older Drivers Safety Awareness Week this week to call attention to the fact that older drivers are living longer and driving longer than ever before. According to the report, nearly 80% of the drivers over 75 also support policies that would require drivers age 75 and older to renew their licenses in person as well as support requirements that seniors, in order to remain licensed, pass a medical screening. The report also found that: \u2022 Nearly 90% of older drivers (65 and older) reported no crashes in the last two years; \u2022 Similarly, 90% of older drivers reported no moving violations; and \u2022 65% of drivers age 75 and older report they never use a cell phone while driving compared to only 48% of the younger \u201colder\u201d drivers (those age 65-69) who never use a phone when behind the wheel. \u201cEven though public perception tends to unfairly characterize seniors as a menace on the road, these findings indicate older Americans tend to support policies to keep themselves safer behind the wheel, making them key allies in their mission to keep driving \u2014 smarter and longer.\u201d says Lloyd Albert, AAA Southern New England\u2019s senior vice president of public and government affairs. Earlier this year, the AAA Foundation also released Understanding Older Drivers: An Examination of Medical Conditions, Medication Use and Travel Behaviors, a report that found: \u2022 86% of those age 65 and older still drive; \u2022 84% of Americans age 65 and older hold a driver\u2019s license compared to barely half in the early 1970s; and \u2022 68% of drivers age 85 plus report driving five or more days a week. In addition to these reports, the AAA Foundation is currently taking a long-term look at aging drivers with a study that will systematically monitor the driving habits of more than 3,000 senior drivers over the next five years. \u201cWith nearly nine out of 10 seniors aged 65 and older still driving, it appears that additional years behind the wheel not only make drivers older, but wiser,\u201d said Mr. Albert. \u201cAs older adults live longer and spend more time behind the wheel, it\u2019s promising to see a trend towards a more pro-safety culture with increasing age.\u201d The AAA Foundation and AAA are promoting these latest findings to support Older Driver Safety Awareness Week, which is Dec. 1-5. Established by the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA), this week aims to promote understanding of the importance of mobility and transportation to ensure older adults remain active in the community and that transportation will not be the barrier stranding them at home.
