What if a seat belt isn't as safe as you think?

There are 43 million drivers over 65 years old in the U.S. That's almost one in every five drivers, and in the next 30 years, the number of senior drivers is expected to grow by 77 percent.

The fatal crash rates rise significantly starting at ages 70-74 and peak for drivers 85 and older, in large part because older adults can't survive their injuries and any complications as well as younger drivers can.
