Older drivers know best in Almeria


DRIVERS aged over 65 across Almeria province are far less likely to commit traffic offences than their younger counterparts.

New data from Spain’s General Directorate of Traffic (DGT) conclusively shows that senior drivers are the safest around.

There are just over 39,000 drivers aged over 65 throughout Almeria. Together they account for 11 per cent of all active drivers. Yet they are responsible for just five per cent of all traffic offences.

The findings are also supported by Linea Directa.

“Despite social prejudices, drivers aged over 65 are the ones who have the least accidents at the wheel: Four times less than those aged under 25”, the insurance company concluded in a recent report.
