MIT News Office's Peter Dizikes came by the AgeLab to discuss our research on older drivers and mobility. He posed three questions to me addressing:

  • What are the principle safety issues surrounding older driver safety,
  • What is the potential of new technology to enable extended safety and mobility; and,
  • What is my perception of any mobility problems on the horizon as the boomers begin to turn 65 in 2011.
The interview (click here to read) is a good read. Observing, researching and working with government and business on older adult mobility for nearly 20 years I am convinced that action, urgency and creativity by individuals, governments and business MUST be applied today if we are to even marginally meet the mobility demands of aging boomers tomorrow.
