As an RN and attorney who represented folks injured in car accidents for decades, I can only suggest that the article leaves out a hugely important issue with older drivers: cognitive decline. Some elders who have it do not realize it and keep driving despite the danger of this impairment. In CA anyone can request that a driver who appears to be impaired due to dementia or other condition can request of the Dept of Motor Vehicles that the driver be re-tested (in person, driving test). Leaving it up to the individual to decide when to stop is simply not a safe strategy.
