Continued Driving and Time to Transition to Nondriver Status through Error-Specific Driving Restrictions
Freund, Barbara; Petrakos, Davithoula
Gerontology & Geriatrics Education, v29 n4 p326-335 Dec 2008
We developed driving restrictions that are linked to specific driving errors, allowing cognitively impaired individuals to continue to independently meet mobility needs while minimizing risk to themselves and others. The purpose of this project was to evaluate the efficacy and duration expectancy of these restrictions in promoting safe continued driving. We followed 47 drivers age 60 years and older for 18 months, evaluating driving performance at 6-month intervals. Results demonstrated restricted drivers had safety profiles similar to safe drivers and gained additional driving time to transition to nondrivers. (Contains 2 tables and 1 figure.)
