Resources for mature motorists
Traffic safety is vital for drivers of all ages, but adults 55 years and older may experience physical changes that affect their ability to drive. Mature motorists can help prolong their driving years by learning to sharpen their reflexes and maintain mobility. AAA offers the following numerous traffic safety and educational programs that aim to help keep mature drivers safely behind the wheel.
