Older Drivers Receive Vehicle Safety Check-Up in Oklahoma

By Car Accident Help on June 10, 2011

As the baby boomer generation continues toward retirement age, the number of mature motorists on the road will continue to rise. By 2030 there will be an estimated 30 million older drivers in the U.S.

In response to this trend, on June 7th, AAA Oklahoma offered a free check to see how well cars fit the mature drivers who drove them. AAA representatives used a twelve point checklist to see what changes could be made to make operating the car safer. Some examples of items from the checklist were head rest, mirror and seat belt adjustments. The process took just 15 minutes, all while the driver was seated in his or her vehicle.

There were also occupational therapists on hand to help drivers adapt their cars to meet their individual needs. No driving skills were tested at the event. The goal of the program was to “keep mature motorists driving as safely as possible for as long as possible”, according to AAA. Any licensed driver age 65 or older who owns a registered vehicle was encouraged to come to the event and have their vehicle evaluated.

Safety while driving is of concern to everyone—no one wants to be the cause or the victim of a crash. While drivers and organizations like AAA can take many preventative measures, accidents can still happen due to negligent drivers or vehicle defects.
