    Other studies by the NHTSA show that the number older drivers involved in fatal accidents caused by impairment or intoxication was the lowest of all DUI or DWI related accidents, 5 percent.

A recent study finds that older drivers showed adaptive responses according to the amount of traffic in a driving scene when identifying road hazards.
