10 Helpful Safety Features for Mature Drivers

As safety features advance, they provide mature drivers the opportunity to stay on the road longer — and more safely. To take advantage, though, older drivers have to adopt and adapt to these features.

Several organizations that promote mature driver safety — the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute, the Hartford Center for Mature Market Excellence and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology AgeLab — have studied vehicle safety technology and found several safety features that are likely to benefit older drivers. The MIT AgeLab and Hartford Center also surveyed 302 drivers from 50 to 69 to find out which features they'd be most likely to adopt.
