    This research effort will document implementation procedures and evaluate the safety consequences of the model program. The Agency regards each of the projects or study areas described in the report to be essential for reaching our safety objectives for these age groups. Listen to the concerns of others If relatives, friends, or others express concerns about your driving, it may be time to take a hard, honest look at your driving ability. Tips are given regarding how to keep a cognitively impaired client from driving, who doesn't remember that he or she is not supposed to drive.

    This workshop is held annually and targets traffic engineers throughout Georgia. Community-based programs offer an opportunity to provide early detection of driving problems and a range of solutions--through referrals to remediation, retraining, and counseling about changes in driving habits and alternative transportation options--in convenient and non-threatening settings. A transportation resource guide has been developed to lead people to alternative transportation, if they must restrict or eliminate driving. What causes this increase? And, perhaps more important, the magnitudes of the problems presented by each group are vastly different. Further feedback, interpretations of screening results, referrals, etc.

    The future of driver training So in the EU, young qualified drivers are more-or-less as good, or bad, as each other. I think not. The program utilizes a public health approach to develop collaborative relationships and processes to determine appropriate educational, environmental, and policy interventions for health and safety professionals, as well as the public. Given the complexity of learning to "read the road" and adjust behaviour appropriately, it is perhaps hardly surprising that, in the process of learning to be safe, the typical young driver has to run the gauntlet of a long series of trial and error experiences.

Transportation in an Aging Society: Improving Mobility and Safety for Older Drivers

Young drivers and their accidents To begin to tackle the problem of young drivers and their accidents, we can first ask if there are features which distinguish them from other groups of road users, in particular older drivers, which might explain their increased accident risk. Unfortunately for the novice driver, a large variety of relatively unfamiliar situations will arise, such as the particular combination of a driver's current speed, a degraded road surface, a bend in the roadway, and the likelihood of loss of road adhesion.
