Support from the Older Drivers Forum to keep older drivers safely

Older Driver Forum

The Older Drivers Forum in Gloucestershire consists of road safety experts and volunteers, focused on how to keep older drivers driving safely, for longer or help to plan to retire from driving.  It is supported by the charitable trust  of Rotary in Nailsworth, the Police Crime Commissioner Martin Surl and MPs Alex Chalk (Cheltenham) and Siobhan Baillie (Stroud). With older drivers following government instructions and socially distancing to save lives, many have also taken a break from driving. Pre-lockdown, 35.2% of the fatalities in in Gloucestershire were over 60, which is 15.2% over the national average. The Older Drivers Forum have targeted advice available and they are also available by Zoom to talk about the advice and help those in Gloucestershire.
