As we age, it is important for senior drivers to know and understand how to adjust for slower reflexes, weaker vision and other medical / age related changes. With the exception of drivers under age 25, senior are at a higher risk of having a serious collision per mile driven. Drivers in their late 70s have about the same number of injury-involved crashes per mile driven as those in their early 20s. And drivers aged 85 and older are injured or killed in crashes at a higher rate than any other group.
This is primarily due to increased fragility that comes with normal aging. Older senior drivers are often less able to withstand the forces of a collision, so they are more likely to become injured, compared with younger drivers. As you may have already realized, mature adults often take longer to recover from injuries as quickly as they once did.
