The post-World War II generation, the Baby Boomers, are beginning to retire at a time when U.S. life expectancy has never been higher. As a result, the population of senior drivers is exploding, a phenomenon that will create potentially massive problems for our traffic planners, highway safety engineers and healthcare providers, as more and more Americans in their 70s, 80s and even 90s continue to ply the roadways. Or will it?
In Safe Senior Drivers, a Guide for a Critical Time, five highly experienced writers take on this serious question. The result is a unique, invaluable tool for keeping yourself – and your aging parent – as safe as possible on the roads. Anchored by editor Phil Berardelli, author of two of the best books ever written about driving safety, and packed with useful information and references, Safe Senior Drivers is the clearest, most comprehensive resource available on what indeed is a critical time in the life of everyone who intends to stay behind the wheel and function well in today's driving environment.
