Are Older Drivers at Greater
Risk of Crashes?
Older drivers may not be the most at risk age group with respect to intersection crashes. A study by Bladock et al. studied crashes in New Zealand and Australia comparing drivers between 0-59, 60-74, and 75+.
The study showed that for the majority of jurisdictions, drivers aged 75+ had a lower crash rate per head of population than those under 60, for intersection-type crashes.
