Impacts of cessation of driving
Chris Emmerson will undertake a major survey of older drivers using the SIDE User Pools coordinated by Dundee and Newcastle. The emphasis on his research is to examine how older drivers assess their driving, what may make then consider giving up driving (medical issues, confidence, family/peer pressure, older driver proficiency testing etc.) and also to quantify the impacts of giving up driving.
The team are currently exploring support from SAGA to extend this work and use their ‘populous panel’ as an additional information source.
