Fewer older drivers are dying in crashes
Despite growing numbers on the road, fewer older drivers died in crashes and fewer were involved in fatal collisions during 1997-2006 than in years past, IIHS researchers have found. Crash deaths among drivers 70 and older fell 21 percent during the period, reversing an upward trend. The reasons aren't clear, but another Institute study indicates that older adults limit their driving as they age.
