For a long time it is has been the conventional wisdom that older drivers are more dangerous on the road. Deteriorating vision and slower reflexes are often pointed to inevitable parts of aging that impact driving ability.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, which conducted the study, said that the decreased level of fatal accidents is likely attributable to safer vehicles and healthier seniors.

There are various rules in place to help ensure these chases do not take place unless they are necessary.
