MONOCULAR VISION AND COMMERCIAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY
This report consolidates some of the information from the scientific and clinical literature about the relation between vision and commercial motor vehicle safety, and on the effects of poor vision on laboratory tasks related to driving. It also reports the results of unpublished research performed on a group of monocular truck drivers licensed in Ontario. The report discusses in detail two studies conducted on the driving and crash behavior of monocular vision drivers and notes the differences in fatal collision rate per vehicle mile experienced by monocular vision truck drivers and by the general truck driving population. Appendices include a discussion of heavy truck collisions in Michigan and Ontario, an evaluation of the effects of Dynavision training on driving skills of persons with stroke, and an overview of vision and depth perception.
