Brain Fitness Predicts Crash Risk
Date:1/15/2010

WASHINGTON, Jan. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Performance at simple mental tasks is highly predictive of crash risk and a small amount of cognitive training can cut the crash risk of older drivers in half, according to research presented this week at the 2010 annual meeting of the Transportation Research Board of the National Academy of Sciences.

This year, the age wave of 70 million baby boomers begins to join the ranks of some 39 million drivers already over age 65. Over time, older drivers tend to reduce their driving, but they still have a crash rate that is the highest of any age group, other than teenagers. Older drivers have the highest fatality rate from automobile crashes of all age groups. Yet, in our society "hanging up the keys" can be devastating and can lead to higher incidence of illness and death.

Three researchers presented findings that indicate that the crash risk of older drivers can be more accurately predicted, that it can be cut in half, and that older drivers can extend their period of safe driving.
