Even with all their experience and knowledge gained by being behind the wheel for so many years, senior drivers are the ones who find themselves as the group with the highest amount of accidents. Drivers 65 and older are twice as likely to be involved in an accident than a younger driver. In addition, 70 percent of drivers over 65 suffer from health conditions ranging from arthritis to vision problems that can greatly reduce their driving performance.
Each year, there are roughly 300,000 car accidents on Georgia roads. As that number increases, so does the number of serious injuries from those crashes.
