By 2030, 20 percent of the world’s drivers, 60 million in all, will be over the age of 65. Consequently, safe and efficient mobility for older adults is a complex and pressing issue. Maintaining Safe Mobility in an Aging Society addresses the complexities surrounding the booming number of aging drivers and practical solutions for sustaining safe transportation for this growing group.

This plainspoken resource informs safe mobility discussions on a variety of areas, including:

  • Necessary skills for safe driving and how age affects them
  • Current evidence on how medical conditions and medication hinder driving skills
  • Comprehensive screening description and assessment practices, issues, and tools
  • Sensitive ways to help older drivers transition into driving cessation
  • Impact of advanced vehicle technology on aging drivers
  • Approaches to strengthening safety-conscious licensing policies

Draws the Significant Link Between Mobility and Well Being

In addition to discussing how age impacts both the risk and severity of accidents and the link between mobility and well-being, this authoritative work discusses means to achieve safer mobility, including roadway design and community transportation options. Authored by driver safety and awareness experts, it covers psychological and physical changes associated with age (both normal and pathological), including an important but rarely explored aspect of dementia known as wandering behavior. It also addresses the role of emerging technology.

Maintaining Safe Mobility in an Aging Society is a concise reference that encompasses an impressive breadth of ready-to-access information. Thorough and systematically organized, it is a groundbreaking and indispensable resource for those providing services to seniors as well as those responsible for transportation policy and design.
