The Psychology of Driving and Traffic Safety for Seniors

Accident statistics as related to driver age will be presented briefly and the implications of these will be discussed. Limitations encountered by many older drivers (vision, cognition, reaction time, range of movement restrictions, driver workload, medical conditions, etc.) will be presented. Design of roads and traffic signs to meet the needs of older drivers will be outlined. Other topics will include the effects of alcohol, drugs and medications, fatigue, driver aggression, gender differences, nighttime driving, and driver distraction. Medical fitness to drive and driving cessation are discussed. Issues related to older pedestrians, especially in winter, are described briefly.
