TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT AND CONTROL FOR THE 1990'S - HIGHWAY SAFETY AND THE OLDER DRIVER. PROCEEDINGS, SIXTH CONFERENCE, ROAD ENGINEERING ASSOCIATION OF ASIA AND AUSTRALASIA, 4-10 MARCH 1990, KUALA LUMPUR, VOLUMES 1 TO 5 AND POST CONFERENCE PROCEEDINGS

The number of older people is increasing rapidly all over the world, and the increase is especially marked in developed countries. This age group relies primarily on the automobile as a means of transportation, so the percentage of elderly drivers is also increasing rapidly. Older drivers are subject to visual impairments and tend to have slower responses to visual cues. To compensate for these limitations and make driving safer for older drivers, highway signs and other guidance devices should be made highly visible. Retroreflective materials now available can provide the necessary visibility, provided decision makers at all levels of government recognize the need. For the covering entry of the conference see IRRD 823206. (Author/TRRL)
