Safety Guide for Seasoned Drivers

AAA, Minnesota Safety Council publication helps older drivers drive safer, longer

By 2030, one in four drivers will be 65 years or older. Keeping seniors driving as long as safely possible not only benefits them, but also benefits society as a whole. On the Go! the newest publication from AAA and the Minnesota Safety Council, addresses physical and cognitive changes drivers experience as they age, as well as changes to roadway design and vehicles. This full-color, 20-page publication uses word games, visual puzzles and other elements to inform and assist active older drivers.

“With 10,000 people turning 65 every day in the United States, it’s a great opportunity for older drivers to refresh their skills and serve as role models for drivers of all ages,” said Randy Williams, regional president of AAA Minnesota/Iowa.

“Seasoned drivers tend to be safe drivers,” said Carol Bufton, president of the Minnesota Safety Council. “But we all need to recognize and adapt to changes. On the Go! is designed to help drivers do that – and have some fun in the process.”

Single copies are available for free at any AAA Minnesota/Iowa branch as well as at the Minnesota Safety Council office in St. Paul. On the Go! A Safety Guide for Seasoned Drivers can also be downloaded as a PDF.
