Factors Leading to Older Drivers' Intersection Crashes

TLDR
Factor leading to intersection crashes vary with age, even between two age groups of older drivers, and roundabouts and protected left turn lanes at signalized intersections may help to reduce failure-to-yield crashes at intersections, especially among older drivers.

The potential crash and injury reduction benefits of safer vehicle choices for older drivers in Australia and New Zealand

TLDR
This study aimed to quantify the effects of older driver vehicle choice in Australia and New Zealand on injury outcomes in the range of crashes in which older drivers are typically involved and the average risk and severity of injury in these crashes.

Collisions involving older drivers - an in-depth study

TLDR
A sample of over 2,000 reported crashes involving drivers aged over 60 was considered, from three midland UK police forces for the years 1994-2005 inclusive and drivers aged under 70 years appeared to be no more likely to have caused any given crash than to have been the victim of another driver's carelessness.

Road Safety Environment and Design for Older Drivers

TLDR
It was concluded that improvements to intersection sight distances, provision of separate turn phases at traffic signals, more conspicuous traffic signal lanterns and more clearly defined vehicle paths have the potential to reduce crash and injury risk for older drivers.

The Older Driver

TLDR
The increasing proportion of the authors' population consisting of older persons underscores the need for research to develop a greater understanding of the needs and capabilities of this age group and to develop system improvements that will enable as many older persons as possible to continue to meet their own transportation needs safely.
