When designing roadways and communities to benefit an aging road user, engineers and planners should consider the natural changes in vision, fitness and flexibility, attention span, and reaction time that occur as we age. For example, making left turns or getting stranded in the crosswalk when the signal changes can be challenging for all road users, but especially those that are experiencing age-related changes.

Building roadways and livable communities with Florida's aging population in mind is critical to the continued safe mobility of older adults. As stakeholders, engineers and planners can help support two focus areas in the Safe Mobility for Life Strategic Action Plan – Livable Communities and Mobility Independence. You can help us meet the objectives of the two focus areas in the following ways:

Livable Communities

Mobility Independence

The resources on this page help support the Coalition’s data-driven approach to eliminating fatalities and serious injuries for Florida’s aging road users. We will be adding more resources and guidance in the near future to directly support engineers and planners. Sign up for our Coalition updates to receive a notification when these resources are available.


FDOT’s State Traffic Engineering and Operations Office developed eTraffic, a GIS based web application, that integrates various FDOT traffic related datasets and is used for reporting and informational purposes. The datasets are reflected as interactive layers that can be activated or deactivated. Safe Mobility for Life is one of those layers and was designed to support our proactive data-driven approach to eliminating fatalities and reducing serious injuries for Florida’s aging road users.
