Abstract

The Centre for Accident Research and Road Safety - Queensland (CARRS-Q) was commissioned by Queensland Transport to develop a set of integrated learning materials that would assist older drivers in better managing their day-to-day driving. The project resulted from a review of current driver management procedures employed in Queensland, and was to form part of a complete Driver Safety and Education Strategy (Watson et al., 1996). The aims of this project were to: (a) help older drivers become more aware of their driving limitations and the age-related driving problems they may experience; and (b) promote ways in which older drivers can moderate their driving as a result of these age-related changes. Ultimately, the resource should encourage older drivers to both self-monitor their driving ability and to make informed decisions about how best to continue driving in the safest possible way.

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
