More aging drivers on the road; NTSB taking action to prevent injuries
The National Transportation Safety Board says the number of people with driver's licenses that are 65 and older is growing.
Now, for the first time, the board is taking action. While seniors are not getting into wrecks as much as teens, federal officials say with more seniors on the road, it's time for prevention. In fact, some insurance companies require medical statements from doctors of older drivers in hopes to stop the fender benders
NTSB has a two-day online public forum about several topics to help aging drivers on the road, including: Safety risks for aging drivers, protections for aging drivers, improvements for vehicles and roads, and measuring driver performance.
