Abstract

Ageing brings cognitive, perceptual, functional and psychomotor limitations (such as, vision, attention, perception, memory, decision-making, reaction time and physical fitness), which may be accompanied by medical conditions that impair driving. The functional limitations caused by these, and quite often the medication used to treat them, result in deteriorating driving abilities.
