Promoting Safe Transportation Among Older Drivers: Risk Assessment via Driving Simulator

The primary objective is to validate driving simulator scenarios to assess older driver safety in a clinical-setting. Older drivers' performance in the driving simulator will be validated as compared to in-clinic assessments, on-road driving performance, and state recorded driving citations and crash involvement. Metrics of driving simulator performance indicative of older driver risk will be determined. There is a pressing need for developing and implementing safe and valid methods of assessing older drivers' risk, which will be met by the proposed study.
