Florida Senior Safety Resource Center

The FSSRC website, developed by the University of Florida National Older Driver Research and Training Center, is designed to provide information and resources on alternative forms of transportation, driving knowledge and skills, and links to national organizations that address transportation issues.

Fitness-To-Drive Screening Measure (FTDS)

The FTDS website, developed by the University of Florida Institute for Mobility, Activity and Participation (I-MAP), is a free Web-based tool, ready to use by CDRSs, occupational therapists (OT), other health care professionals, and caregivers and family members of older adults. Findings suggest that the FTDS may help families and caregivers identify at-risk older drivers, help OTs identify an entry point for intervention or referral, and help CDRSs develop realistic intervention goals that promote safe driving fitness.
