PSYCHIATRIC DISORDERS AND MOTOR VEHICLE CRASH RISK: REVIEW OF LITERATURE
This report reviews recent published work on the crash risk of drivers diagnosed with dementia, functional psychoses, anxiety disorders, and personality disorders. The researchers stress that knowing someone has been diagnosed with a mental illness would not provide sufficient grounds for a licensing decision. The crash risk of mentally ill driver depends on the type and severity of the disorder and, if drug therapy if prescribed, the effects of medication use. The major findings associated with each disorder category are summarized in tabuler form as an information resource for clinicians and administrators.
