I don't know how this report will affect the hiring of 65-plus cab drivers, delivery drivers or truck drivers, but it should give us all pause. I guess if you're looking for an encore career after 65, you might try a line of work that doesn't include a lot of driving.
Excerpt from the HealthDayNews story:
Older workers who drive as part of their job have significantly higher traffic death rates than younger workers, U.S. health officials reported Thursday.Workers aged 65 and older have about three traffic-related deaths per 100,000 people, which is triple the rate of workers aged 18 to 54, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
