The objectives for the policy track are to: 1) highlight best practices in state and federal policies related to older drivers (e.g. licensing, renewal, medical review, and medical reporting) and discuss innovative practices; 2) identify gaps and challenges not yet addressed and to highlight legal issues on the horizon; and 3) present a model of best practices and an approach to policy formation that will contribute to older driver crash reduction and improved mobility. The final policy session focuses on innovations.
