Over the last 40 years, the number of vehicles on the roads has almost trebled from 12 million to 35 million and in the past decade alone, there's been a 53 percent rise in the number of people aged 60 & over killed or seriously injured on the roads.

On top of this, the number of drivers aged over 70 has risen from 2.2 million to 3.9 million between 1992 & 2012 and is projected to rise to 5.8 million by 2032.
