Crash Rates: Drivers in Their 70s Below Middle-Aged Drivers

crashes as a result of the aging U.S. population. Drivers in their 70s are now less likely to be involved in a fatal crash than those in prime working years. Not only do drivers in their 70s now have fewer fatal crashes per licensed driver, but they also have fewer police-reported crashes per mile traveled than middle-aged drivers.
