Traffic Accidents caused by elderly in Japan

traffic accidents

Out biking with the lads today and one of our gang was almost taken out by an elderly driver who looked blind (Neil is not exactly small and was wearing a high visibility jacket), seemed deaf and doubtful whether he should hold a driver’s licence.

Neil asked for the stats on elderly driver accidents stats – here you go – For drivers 65yo and over they are jumped from 11% of accidents to 15.5% and for your driver (75yo+) have climbed from 4% to over 6% now.
