A vehicle is one of the largest purchases a person can make, so it is critical to find the one that best suits the driver’s needs. AAA worked with the University of Florida Institute for Mobility, Activity, and Participation to help identify smart features for older drivers (SFOD) to optimize their comfort and safety.
AAA is dedicated to keeping seniors driving for as long as safely possible. We also are committed to promoting viable transportation options for seniors who can no longer drive independently. Visit National AAA Senior Driving to discover even more resources that help seniors drive safer and longer.
AAA distributes a number of publications addressing driver and traffic safety issues. Topics include occupant protection, traffic signs, signals and markings, driving in inclement weather, and older-pedestrian safety.
