The specialist report "illness and driving", first published in 1973, has been the subject of considerable attention in connection with the medical examination forming part of the driving fitness test. As a result of a suggestion by the general committee for traffic-medicine, the report has now been re-written. The new edition was published on the 2nd June, 1978. The situation in Europe and particularly in the Federal Republic of Germany is described, as is the legal position of the experts. In a special part of the report the physical and psychological ailments which can affect A driver are examined to determine whether and to what extent they diminish or curtail his fitness to drive. The minimum requirements for vision are illustrated in a comprehensive table. (TRRL)
