Saga comments on record number of drivers over 70

Monday 23 September 2013

Commenting on the news that there are now four million drivers aged over 70 in the UK, Paul Green, director of communications at Saga says:

"We insure hundreds of thousands of people over the age of 70 and our experience is that they are safer drivers than younger age groups, they adjust their driving according to their ability and as a result have fewer accidents.  As society continues to age and age well, it is a good thing that more people are continuing to drive as this enables them to live life to the full in retirement."
