VISION TESTS AS ROAD SAFETY MEASURES

Eye-tests for road users, more particularly for applicants for a driving licence, are considered primarily as a way to improve road safety, but prohibition from driving based on an eye-test cannot be justified on grounds of accident reduction. In the Netherlands an eye-test is obligatory for applicants for a driving licence as a screening test only. If the test is negative, the applicant must consult an ophthalmologist, who may advise against the granting of a driving licence. (TRRL)
