The population of the aged in Japan is rapidly increasing and Japan will be confronted with a different social situation from that of the European and American longevity countries. It is forecast that the problems of aging society, especially in the traffic field, become more serious than those in other fields. In view of this situation, we should drastically review the existing safety measures. In this article, we have discussed how the aged can participate in the traffic society. Also, how they can be made aware of the changes in their physical abilities, and drive safely and harmoniously in order to contribute to the development of safety and social activities.
