Senior drivers are causing a larger number of auto accidents, and the number is expected to increase in the years ahead.
The number of licensed elderly drivers is the highest it has ever been, and that number is predicted to skyrocket as the Baby Boomer generation continues to age. Policymakers are worried that this growing elderly driving population will lead to surges in traffic accidents and, subsequently, injury to property and person. There were 36.8 million licensed senior drivers in 2013 — a 27 percent increase from 2004.
