Ageing, mental illness and medical diseases: a synthesis of results

IMMORTAL is a research programme on the accident risk associated with different forms of driver impairment and the specification of 'tolerance levels' applicable to various medical conditions for the assessment of fitness to drive. This assessment is part of licensing procedures and roadside impairment testing (including drug screening). Task R1.9 includes both the co-ordination of the whole work package (WP) and the formulation of a synthesis based on the outcome of the research Tasks. Thus, the aim of this Task and the present paper is to link the results of the various Tasks in work package R1 (WP R1) "Ageing, mental illness and medical diseases" and to provide recommendations for further action. The paper focuses on requirements for acquiring a driving licence and the assessment of chronic impairment of fitness to drive.
