Liberty Mutual, Partner Ally to Help Senior Drivers

Liberty Mutual, the eighth largest car and home insurer in the United States, announced a new partnership May 15 with ITNAmerica, a national, non-profit transportation network for America's aging population, to help keep senior drivers safe on our roads. The partnership offers resources and aid at www.libertymutual.com/seniordriving.

By 2030, the nation's senior population is estimated to be nearly 71 million; transportation and driving safety are a major concern for seniors and their children. The insurer says more than 30 million senior drivers age 65 or older on the road today, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, now or will soon need to acknowledge physical limitations that will cause them to reduce their driving or seek alternative transportation.

May is National Older Americans Month. "Today's older Americans are among the most active and community-engaged seniors in our nation's history, and mobility and independence are essential to preserve those great qualities," said ITNAmerica Founder and President Katherine Freund. "With the support of Liberty Mutual, we will grow this community-based transportation network across the country and will provide resources seniors and their families need to make responsible driving decisions."

Her organization provides 24/7 personalized rides to seniors who limit or stop driving with help from ITN volunteers from the local community and a small paid staff in affiliate communities: Charleston, S.C.; Portland, Maine; Orlando, Fla; and Los Angeles. Greg Gordon, Liberty Mutual vice president of Consumer Marketing, said Liberty Mutual will help expand its affiliates to Chicago; San Diego; Lexington, Ky.; Enfield and Middlesex, Conn.; and the Quad Cities of Iowa and Illinois.
