GENDER EFFECT ON THE ACCIDENT PATTERNS OF ELDERLY DRIVERS

Over the past decades, elderly drivers have been the fastest growing segment of the driving population. The increase of elderly drivers during the 1970-1997 period rose by approximately 180% which is the highest among all age groups and three times greater than the total driving population growth. Older drivers face a variety of barriers to continued automobile travel. Barriers such as physical limitations associated with aging, compounded with reluctance to forgo reliance on the automobile, suggest that ever greater use of the automobile among elderly may have significant societal implications. This paper seeks to provide a better understanding of gender distinctions in the crash involvement of older drivers.
