THE DETERMINATION OF THE DRIVING APTITUDE OF ELDERLY PEOPLE IN GOOD HEALTH

L'APPRECIATION DE L'APTITUDE A CONDUIRE DES PERSONNES AGEES EN BONNE SANTE

The rate and the importance of accidents are particularly high with elderly drivers considering their participation in the circulation. Periodic medical checkups are a necessity in the interest of this category of drivers. The frequency of accidents is due, apart from purely medical reasons, to a slowing down and decreased efficacy of functions of perceptivo-motor integration. An effective and just control of the driving aptitude of elderly people should be carried out, based on adequate and valid tests taking, however, into consideration the factor of experience on the road and the aging in each individual case.
