Senior Drivers Among the Safest on the Road

As reported on WTOP.com on March 12, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) released a study that found that seniors over 75 years of age are some of the safest drivers on the road.
In the three-year study, the IIHS found drivers over the age of 75 posted a 45 percent drop in fatal accidents per miles traveled – more than any other age group. However, according to the study, drivers over 85 years of age had a higher rate of deadly accidents than any other age group, except teenagers.
