Older drivers can improve safe-driving habits with driver education

According to a study conducted by the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society (HF/ES), driver retraining is an effective strategy for improving the safe-driving habits of older drivers over the long term.  In 2009, participants that received simulator training and videos reviews of their driving performance increased their likelihood of scanning while negotiating an intersection by 100%.
Two years after their training, older drivers in the trained group still took secondary looks on average 73% of the time, more than one and a half times as often as pre-training levels. Control group drivers involved in the study, who averaged secondary looks 41% of the time, saw no significant change in performance over the 2-year period.
Participants who take a driver retraining course may also qualify for savings on their auto insurance.

Those interested in taking an online or classroom Safe Driving for Mature Operators should contact their local AAA club.  For more resources and information on retaining driving independence as aging occurs, visit aaa.seniordriving.com.
