Turning the Corner...and Still Driving: A Review of Law Enforcement Programs Involving Older Driver Safety

The aging population is presenting law enforcement with the rapidly expanding, complex issue of the "older driver." This guide is intended to help sheriffs and other law enforcement administrators identify and locate resources, develop and implement strategies, and train and equip personnel to effectively address concerns posed by older drivers in their communities. Section One provides background information on the subject. Section Two presents three case studies that illustrate how sheriffs are pioneering the effort to address this component of their service to communities. These representative programs can be replicated and tailored to suit local needs. Section Three identifies the keys to success of senior driver programs. Each component is important but dependent; together they work in tandem with the other elements, leading to overall success.
