By the year 2020, one in four Florida residents will be over the age of 65, and half of them will be 75 or older. To meet this challenge the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) developed a strategic plan to develop, implement, and monitor strategies to ensure a safe and efficient transportation system for all road users.
The Safe Mobility for Life Program focuses on mature drivers and pedestrians, with the added benefit of improving safety for everyone.
FDOT is sponsoring a one-day training course, entitled "The Safe Mobility for Life Program: Planning and Designing for our Aging Population ", designed to raise awareness of problems associated with mature drivers and our current roadways, and to present options and alternative solutions to the planning, design, and operation of Florida roadways and associated facilities today and in the future.
Both CE and PE credits are available.
