Out for a drive
More and more people age 50+ are moving to Delaware. And most of them are hitting the road and doing it safely. In fact, we know that older drivers are safe drivers. The incidence of older driver crashes and fatalities has declined steadily. These older drivers are keeping their licenses longer and driving more often. We also know they are less likely to talk on a cellphone while driving or drive under the influence of alcohol.
