Driving Safety

Driving Safety for Older Adults

Between 1999 and 2016, the number of older drivers on the road increased by 56%.

To address the need to have better conversations around the ways aging may affect our driving, the American Geriatrics Society (AGS) released two sets of resources, one to assist clinicians of all kinds in optimizing care for older drivers and the other to assist older drivers and their caregivers.

The clinician bundle brings together four products developed through a cooperative agreement between AGS and the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration:

  • Clinician’s Guide to Assessing and Counseling Older Drivers (4th ed.)
  • Emergency Medicine and Trauma Specialist’s Quick Guide for Assessing and Counseling Older Drivers
  • Safe Older Drivers - Mobile App
  • AGS Virtual Patient Cases on the Assessment of Older Drivers

The resources on driving safety for older adults is on AGS’ HealthinAging.org website.
