Department for Transport statistics published in 2018 state that “In 2016, the rate of car drivers involved in reported road collisions per billion vehicle miles travelled begins to increase with age for groups where car drivers are aged over 70 years old.
In England, there were 468 car drivers aged 71 to 75 involved in reported road collisions per billion vehicle miles travelled, which is 28 per cent higher than the lowest rate for car drivers which is the 66 to 70 years old age group (367 car drivers per billion vehicle miles travelled). The rate increased markedly from the age group of 81 to 85 and is 2,168 car drivers per billion miles travelled for drivers aged 86 and over which is the highest of any age band”.
These are important statistics which reflect a growing global trend and Satsafe is the first company in the world to be actively addressing this issue with cutting edge technologies.
