THE DRIVING HABITS OF OLDER ADULTS WITH VISUAL IMPAIRMENT

It is estimated that there are 3 million Americans with visual impairment. How many persons with visual impairment drive and how their driving habits differ from elderly drivers without visual impairment is not known. To address this issue a driving survey was administered to a group of elderly recruited from a retirement home community and an agency providing services to persons with visual impairment. The survey solicited demographic information, information about driving habits, and ratings of either the level or frequency of difficulty experienced with different driving tasks.
