Older drivers - a review
Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute.
2004 (English)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [sv]

The proportion of senior citizens (aged 65+) will grow from about 15% in the

year 2000 to about 30% in the year 2050. The share of older drivers in the

driver population will grow even faster because of increasing licensing rates

among the ageing population. Older drivers do not have higher accident risk

than others. They do however have higher risk of being injured and killed in

accidents because of their with age increasing physical frailty. Generally

speaking, safety measures targeted towards older driver are beneficial for

all. In the present report measures are described that focus on the drivers,

on the traffic environment, on vehicles and on ITS applications.
