Be Mobile, Drive Safe Initiative for 2014
The Baltimore County Department of Aging has developed a Be Mobile, Drive Safe initiative for 2014 to enhance older driver safety and to provide options when individuals are ready to travel by other means. Given that there over 57,000 drivers over the age of 75 in Maryland, it is important to raise awareness of the resources and tools available to extend driving safety.
