Review of the options:

  • No, since drivers over the age of 75 years tend to drive more calmly.
    – This statement is true (75+ drive more calmly), but it does not matter, they are still involved in more accidents than the 45–65-year-olds. The option is therefore incorrect.

  • Yes, since they have experience and their senses are still relatively sharp.
    – Correct.

  • No, since drivers over the age of 75 years have more traffic experience.
    – This statement is true (75+ often have the longest experience), but it does not matter, they are still involved in more accidents than the 45–65-year-olds. The option is therefore incorrect.

  • Yes, since drivers over the age of 75 years often overestimate their abilities.
    – Wrong, they have a good self-knowledge and rarely overestimate their own abilities.

The main reason why people over the age of 75 run a higher risk of being in an accident is that the senses and ability to make quick decisions deteriorate in older people (Driving Licence Book, 19th Edition, page 201).
