SUMMARY

KEEPING THE ROADS SAFE: Are We Ready to Meet the Transportation Needs of Aging Baby Boomers?---------------------------------------------------------------------------------By 2030, 20 percent of the world's drivers, 60 million in all, will be over the age of 65. Consequently, safe and efficient mobility for older adults is a complex and pressing issue. Maintaining Safe Mobility in an Aging Society addresses the complexities surrounding the booming number of aging drivers and practical solutions for sustaining safe transportation for this growing group.This plainspoken resource informs safe mobility discussions on a variety of areas, including:Necessary skills for safe driving and how age affects themCurrent evidence on how medical conditions and medication hinder driving skillsComprehensive screening description and assessment practices, issues, and toolsSensitive ways to help older drivers transition into driving cessationImpact of advanced vehicle technology on aging driversApproaches to strengthening safety-conscious licensing policiesDraws the Significant Link Between Mobility and Well BeingIn addition to discussing how age impacts both the risk and severity of accidents and the link between mobility and well-being, this authoritative work discusses means to achieve safer mobility, including roadway design and community transportation options. Authored by driver safety and awareness experts, it covers psychological and physical changes associated with age (both normal and pathological), including an important but rarely explored aspect of dementia known as wandering behavior. It also addresses the role of emerging technology.Maintaining Safe Mobility in an Aging Society is a concise reference that encompasses an impressive breadth of ready-to-access information. Thorough and systematically organized, it is a groundbreaking and indispensable resource for those providing services to seniors as well as those responsible for transportation policy and design.Eby, David W. is the author of 'Maintaining Safe Mobility in an Aging Society', published 2008 under ISBN 9781420064537 and ISBN 1420064533.
