Allstate Wants to Improve Driving with Video Games
The insurance giant is running a pilot program for drivers over 50 in Pennsylvania that uses a video game developed by Posit Science to increase visual acuity, cognitive skills, and reaction time. Allstate plans on distributing the game to 100,000 customers and comparing the accident rates to a control group of the same age that don't use the game.
Though drivers between 50 and 60 years old have the lowest accident rates, the rate starts to climb after 60. Allstate hopes this will help eliminate or reduced the impact of age-related decline. Lets just hope it also helps our senior motorists find the gas pedal. [From: USA Today]
