Report examines elderly involvement in fatal accidents

March 14, 2018

Pennsylvania is among the states with the most vehicle fatalities involving elderly drivers.  A report by TRIP, a nonprofit transportation research group based in Washington, D.C., discusses fatalities involving elderly drivers nationwide, as well as possible solutions.

“Largely because of the transportation funding measure known as Act 89, Pennsylvania reached a record low number of overall highway fatalities in 2016,” noted PHIA Managing Director Jason Wagner.  “This is very positive news.  However, this report shows there is still much to be done to improve safety for older drivers and improve mobility for seniors.”
