RESEARCH AND OTHER ISSUES CONCERNING EFFECTS OF MEDICAL CONDITIONS ON ELDERLY DRIVERS

Most research on medical impairment to driving has been limited by the inability to define some conditions, inadequate sample selection, poor definition of excessive crash risk, ignoring of comorbid conditions or human-environmental interactions, and failure to examine the interaction of aging and medical conditions. Driver screening proceduures are both crude and inadequately related to data or theory. Recommendations are presented to improve research and screening programs.
