OLDER DRIVERS AND ROAD SAFETY: THE ACCEPTABILITY OF A RANGE OF INTERVENTION MEASURES

A total of 2294 drivers aged 50 or above were sent survey questionnaires that presented a list of 21 measures that might be used to maintain and improve levels of road safety among an ageing driver population. Respondents were required to indicate how acceptable the listed methods would be. Differences in acceptability on the basis of age and sex were explored. Ratings of the effectiveness of each measure revealed little consensus about which measures would be most effective. The data reported suggest that older drivers are not likely to find acceptable any measure that takes away from the individual the responsibility for deciding when and how to stop driving.
