The large number of baby boomers, who are likely to drive much longer than previous generations, points to an increased need for older-driver safety programs and policies. As state-level agencies charged with providing information and programs on behavioral traffic safety, state highway safety offices (SHSOs) are a logical place for either developing and managing a more extensive older-driver safety program or providing funding and leadership for other agencies that conduct these programs.

The TRB Behavioral Traffic Safety Cooperative Research Program's BTSCRP Research Report 4: Promoting Older Driver Safety: Guide for State Practices provides guidance for SHSOs to enhance older driver safety.
