Rapid deceleration occurs when substantial force slows the speed of a vehicle. Rapid deceleration events (RDEs) have been proposed as a surrogate safety measure. As there is concern about crash involvement of older drivers and the effect of age-related declining visual and cognitive function on driving performance, we examined the relationship between RDEs(More)
BACKGROUND This study aims to examine diagnosis-specific sickness absence as a risk marker for all-cause mortality. METHODS Prospective occupational cohort (the GAZEL study). Medically certified sickness absence spells >7 days for 15 diagnostic categories, 1990-1992, were examined in relation to all-cause mortality, January 1993-February 2007. The(More)
OBJECTIVE The study sought to determine whether an organized health promotion intervention during medical consultations improves the outcome for patients who meet the ICD10 criteria for anxiety or depressive disorders. METHODS In 2001, physicians used the MINI to screen 9743 employees on sick leave and consulting physicians in 21 medical centres of a(More)
There is little objective evidence about the extent older drivers' are involved in speeding or factors that may influence this behaviour. Particular concern exists for the increasing number of older drivers with poor or declining cognitive and visual function. This study investigates whether a reduction in speeding forms part of the self-restrictive driving(More)
OBJECTIVE Even small increases in vehicle speed raise crash risk and resulting injury severity. Older drivers are at increased risk of involvement in casualty crashes and injury compared to younger drivers. However, there is little objective evidence about older drivers' speeding. This study investigates the nature and predictors of high-range speeding(More)
A study of the frequency of life events was conducted in a group of subjects selected from the general population over a period of 9 months. Four assessments were made, using an events questionnaire and the Psychiatric Symptom Index (PSI), at 3-monthly intervals. The results show a significant relationship (maintained over time) between PSI score and the(More)
The data presented in this article are related to the research article entitled "A longitudinal investigation of the predictors of older drivers׳ speeding behavior" (Chevalier et al., 2016) [1], wherein these speed events were used to investigate older drivers speeding behavior and the influence of cognition, vision, functional decline, and self-reported(More)
BACKGROUND The study of the relationship between life events and mental illness has progressed considerably over the last 30 years. Practically all mental disorders have been explored using a variety of methods of variable value. The results are in favor of the existence of a temporal link between life events and illness. The part played by life events is(More)
