Drivers 55 Plus: Test Your Own Performance. A Self-Rating Form of Questions, Facts and Suggestions for Safe Driving.
Malfetti, James L.; Winter, Darlene J.
This booklet contains a 15-question rating form that provides some guidance to older drivers in beginning to assess their driving skills. The pages following the self-rating form discuss the various questions on the form. After a general introduction, the discussion is divided into five areas that traffic safety authorities have judged critical to safe performance: driving habits, physical conditions, emotions, health habits, and driving records and other indicators. The discussion is organized around why an item is important (facts) and what, if anything, can be done to overcome shortcomings (suggestions), so the individual can maintain safe driving performance or improve it.
