BACKGROUND Despite sensational news reports, few studies have quantified the rates of poor driving performance among older drivers and the predictors of poor performance. We determined the rate of running red traffic lights among older drivers and the relationship of failure to stop to measures of vision and cognition. METHODS Multiple measures of vision and cognition were collected at the baseline examination of a population of 1,425 drivers aged 67-87 years in greater Salisbury, Maryland… CONTINUE READING
