Older Drivers' Compliance with License Restrictions

Some States allow older drivers whose skills have declined to obtain restricted licenses that allow them to drive only under specified conditions, such as during daytime or within a few miles of home. The objective of this study is to examine the effects of these restrictions on older drivers' safety. This project will explore the extent to which older drivers who have received restricted drivers licenses comply with those restriction, and whether such restrictions are effective in reducing older drivers' crash risk. Researchers will document the process for restriction older drivers' licenses, and obtain citation and crash data for drivers with restricted licenses. Analyses will determine the proportion of drivers with restricted licenses who are in crashes or receive citations under conditions that violate the restrictions.
