Aging Factors that Affect the Driving Task

The literature reviewed in this paper describes how the aging driver emerges as a person who initially begins to experience difficulty with vision and hearing, then gradually a slowing down in his decision-making capabilities. While these general observations can be made, it is difficult to avoid drawing the conclusion that studies correlating know aging deficiencies with the driving task are scanty and that makes it extremely difficult to propose changes in the vehicle, road, or environment that would have a predictive or direct benefit.
