Event Summary

Forum : Safety, Mobility, and Aging Drivers
 
11/9/2010 12:00 AM

On November 9-10, 2010, the National Transportation Safety Board held a public forum on Safety, Mobility, and Aging Drivers.

The forum kicked off with a discussion of safety metrics - accidents, injury, and fatalities - to help us understand the transportation risks associated with aging. An occupant protection panel explored the details of decreased injury tolerance with age and the complications associated from recovery given a crash injury. It was followed by a highway and vehicle design panel that discussed the infrastructure and vehicle design efforts to improve the performance of aging drivers.

The second day of the forum will begin with consideration of the ways we can assess driver capability, both in terms of mental and physical abilities. The forum will close with a panel that looks at the variety of State Department of Motor Vehicle licensing approaches that have been enacted by state legislatures in recent years.
