Americans for Older Driver Safety is a nationally recognized expert advocate on older driver road safety issues.

AFODS is the only organization in the United States with the exclusive mission to advocate for safer roads through older driver education, assessment, retraining and transitioning; and to raise public awareness of the safety risks related to unmonitored changes in driver abilities.

The organization’s objective is to make roads safer for older drivers and all Americans. Susan Cohen and Mitchell Krasnopoler founded AFODS in 2012 following the 2011 death of their 20-year-old son, Nathan. An 83-year old driver making a right turn crossed into the bicycle lane where Nathan was riding, resulting in the fatal crash that took his life.
