Elderly Drivers and Fatal Car Accidents

There are more drivers aged 70 and older on the roads now than ever before. As the Baby Boomer generation ages, that population will expand, as will the information and misinformation regarding older drivers and serious car accidents. With no set guidelines about how to deal with age and the right to drive, it is important for people understand the real impact of older people on the roads before placing unnecessary restrictions on the licenses of elderly Americans.

Boorish Behavior, Speeding Infractions and Fatal Car Accidents

When Indiana passed a law aimed at aggressive driving, it became the first state to do so since 2005. It joined 10 other states in attempting to reduce fatal car accidents by punishing aggressive drivers. The Governors Highway Safety Association recently released a report highlighting the dangers of speeding and aggressive driving. Roughly one out of every three deadly traffic accidents is caused by speeding. More than 10,000 people were killed in 2010 as a result of speeding. It is hoped that the report will help spur greater efforts to stop dangerous driving practices that have become commonplace.
