If someone were to survey readers about who they think are the worst drivers, one of the typical responses may be the elderly. Our older generations are sometimes seen as slow to react when it comes to driving, but a recent study shows these ideas may not hold much water.
The study shows that drivers that are 70 and over are actually less likely to be seriously injured or killed in an accident and less likely to be involved in a crash than previous generations. That is especially true for those aged 80 and over.
Researchers say this may be because our older generations are getting healthier and our vehicles are getting safer.
