Michigan drivers age 65 and older were surveyed by telephone about driving-related concerns expressed by their adult children. Categorical analysis was used to identify salient differences between respondents whose adult children had expressed concerns and those whose adult children had not (based on self-report of subjects in the sample). Adult children were more likely to express concerns if respondents had been involved in a crash within the past year, were uncomfortable merging onto a freeway in heavy traffic or driving 200 miles in a familiar area, avoided driving in inclement weather, showed declines in physical functioning, or were men.
