Older Commercial Drivers: Do They Pose a Safety Risk?

This report presents the results of TRB CTBSSP Project MC-18: Older Commercial Drivers: Do They Pose a Safety Risk? It provides a knowledge base regarding age-related changes in the basic functional abilities needed to drive safely that can assist industry and labor practitioners in promoting safer commercial operations. It may also inform the broader commercial vehicle safety community and the FMCSA in developing policies and regulations that protect public safety without penalizing drivers on the basis of their age.
