ERFAHRUNGEN BEI DER BEURTEILUNG DER FAHRTAUGLICHKEIT

A REGULATION (OF 27.10.76) EXISTS IN SWITZERLAND COVERING THE APPROVAL OF PERSONS FOR DRIVING WHICH CAN BE USED AS A BASIS FOR ASSESSING DRIVING APTITUDE. AT THE LEGAL-MEDICAL INSTITUTE OF ZURICH UNIVERSITY REPORTS SINCE 1963 ON MEDICAL EXAMINATIONS OF MOTOR VEHICLE DRIVERS HAVE BEEN LISTED AND STATISTICALLY AND EXPERIMENTALLY ANALYSED. THE AUTHOR REPORTS ON THE FINDINGS OF TESTS CARRIED OUT ON THE DRIVERS INVESTIGATED (BREACHES OF LAW AND ROAD ACCIDENTS). SOME HAVE EPILEPSY AND HEART ILLNESS AND THERE ARE DRIVERS WITH IMPAIRED EYESIGHT (COLOUR BLINDNESS, LIMITED OR CONSIDERABLY INCREASED STEREOSCOPIC SIGHT, BLINDNESS IN ONE EYE) AND THOSE WITH IMPAIRED HEARING (DEAFNESS).
