The campaign "Move Safely and Protect Them" began in 2016, in Andalucía, observing an alarming increase in cases of old people, reflected in the media -run over to cyclists or disoriented drivers circulating in the opposite direction-. This opened the debate on whether a limit age should be set to stop driving or it should be the drivers themselves and their families who put those limitations, because everything will depend, in any case, on the physical condition of each one.

It should be taken into account that 8.5 percent of drivers -2,251,000 of the 26,312,000 people who have some type of driving license in Spain- are over 70 years old, according to data from the Dirección general de Tráfico (DGT). Not all of them drive regularly, but there are many of them who do drive, especially in smaller municipalities, where the distances to travel are shorter. In addition, it should be noted that some of those who do so are almost nonagenarian, and to add danger to the matter, they usually drive cars that are more than 10 years old, since many buy their last car at 60 years of age.
