Older DriversApril 21, 2011 | in Helping You Drive Safely
Older drivers are the fastest growing segment of the U.S. population. Not only will there be more drivers, but these drivers will also drive more miles per year than previous generations, and will drive at older ages. Older drivers currently make up 10 percent of all drivers. By the year 2020, one of four Florida residents will be over age 64, and half of them will be 75 or older.
Studies suggest that many older adults in the U.S. will outlive their ability to drive. Pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorcyclists share the road with drivers and this site will provide links to resources to make these driving alternatives safer for all road users.
The U.S. Census Bureau has released a report, "The Next Four Decades, The Older Population in the United States: 2010 to 2050" that contains estimates and projections for the 65 year and older population.
