The 55+ Driver Safety Task Team’s goal is to maintain the mobility and safety of drivers 55 years of age and up, while making the roadways safer for all road users. The group, made up of stakeholders from the health care, public health and transportation communities as well as the private sector, implements activities geared towards five Safety E’s: Education, Engineering, Enforcement (policy), and Emergency Medical Services, and Evaluation
