Older Americans Month

Older Americans Month is a time to plan how to be safe on the road all year long. Follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and LinkedIn for tips on safety all month long.

The Clearinghouse for Older Road User Safety (ChORUS) serves as a centralized, user-friendly, and dynamic source of information pertaining to highway safety for aging drivers, passengers, pedestrians, and cyclists. Built as a comprehensive resource, it covers all three major components of highway safety: safe roadways, safe road users, and safe vehicles.

Driving rehab specialist Susie Touchinsky, OTR/L, SCDCM, CDRS, shares how one of her clients who suffered from a stroke was able to drive again with the help of adaptive driving equipment.
