Driver safety program hits the road

VERMONT- The Vermont Department of Health, in partnership with the Vermont Agency of Transportation, has launched an older driver safety program, which includes new resources and a webinar series. The program features information for drivers, their families, caregivers, and health care providers, as well as policy makers and public safety officials.  
People over 65 have a higher risk of being injured or killed in a traffic crash – and the likelihood increases as we age. According to the Vermont Agency of Transportation, in 2021, almost 20% of deaths and 17% of injuries on our roadways were among people 65 and older.  
As part of the Older Driver Safety Program, the health department is working with a group of statewide partners to host a webinar series, “The Road to Mobility.” The webinars, each held from 12 to 1 pm, include:  Law Enforcement: Your Role in Older Driver Safety; and  Policymakers and Local Decision-Makers: Creating Safe & Livable Communities, on June 29.
